On my homestead being frugal is usually the only option. So when things are made they are usually made quick and cheap and usually not of very good quality.
What have you diy’d or plan to? And what are your most repurposed items?
I use doors for lots of things- desks, shelves, loft bed, keeping chickens in, and flat surfaces, etc.
I’ve redneced a chicken run, with skids. They are free range now!
Next on the list- rabbit tractor and green house.
Any ideas on building a green house or pics or your diy green house?
Edible Acres uses cattle panels to make greenhouses. He has several videos with updates of how the plants are growing.
He's currently building a "fancier" greenhouse which is another option.
"Hundreds of years from now it will not matter what my bank account was, the sort of house I lived in or the type of car I drove... But the world may be different because I did something so bafflingly crazy that it becomes a tourist destination"
We do an annual benefit concert on this farm with multiple bands and hundreds of people, so on that day things must look nice. needing a way to mow the ditches of my roads that I just cannot get with a bushog, I bolted a 2x4 to the bucket of my tractor, bolted on a fan, and powered it with a generator. It worked!!
My whole life is about cobbling crap together to get by. When I needed to seed down 10 acres of field back into grass ground, I cobbled together a broadcaster using a drill and paint bucket lid. My generator powered the drill.
