    Love your videos! You guys make it look like anything is possible working as a team. It's fun going through your thought process as you design and remedy issues that arise.
    You're becoming my favorite off-grid channel!

    You and Jules are doing a great job building your homestead and should be very proud of your achievements as you truly are building it yourselves unlike other channels who claim to be, while all the work is done by others. All the hard work and problem solving and mistakes and solutions along the way just make your journey more entertaining for us and more rewarding for you guys when you achieve your goals. Keep up the good work and best wishes to you and your family from here in Scotland.

    The porch is going to be a fun addition for this coming winter, but I am getting worried about y'all getting the rest of the addition dried in before the snow flies. I have my fingers crossed y'all be able to get it done before it's that stinkin' cold out.

    Hopefully it will be able to handle the weight of snow of the build up between the pitches of roof. You might have to do porch cleaning every winter. Depends on the snow that drops every year.

    Hi Martin an jules I found your channel about 2 months ago and have watched all your videos. I totally enjoy the both of you as a couple you are so natural and well matched. À lovely family I live in scotland in scottish Highlands I have 25 acres of land in the grampian mountains. I have done like you are doing with hand building my home with garage and workshop . You have a lovely home and integrated garage and this porch episode was very enjoyable to watch .I like you are working feverish because winter is coming fast .you will know there are never enough hours in the day with winter chasing. I am splitting timber to dry for next winter so jobs never end .Goodluck with your home and will be wating for your next adventure with your home. Mr muscles is handy when you need 3 pair of hands at once love the kittens.

One thing you should expand on is the HOME-SCHOOLING media that is available now compared to years ago. One of the good things about the Covid was the realization of home-schooling advantages.

    Great job you are lucky to have a wife that is willing to work side by side with you to beat the weather. We live 30 mins north of you and last year my wife and i failed to beat the snow while doing our roof but we managed to get underlayment on and we finished this past spring. Being on a roof with 15mph winds and 20 degree weather made me appreciate my wife more. BTW what weather app do you use, i can't seem to find an accurate one with all the micro-climates we have in the mountains?

    Looking good, hope you beat the snow. One suggestion is to flash the upper roof fascia to the top of the porch roof. You don't want any gap there as it will collect blowing show, leaves and allow critters to get in make a nice home in the cavity between the upper roof and porch roof. You will want to add some venting at the ends of that cavity or in the ceiling below the cavity to get air circulation in through the upper roof bird blocking.
    Don't know how your are going to nail down the porch decking behind the upper roof fascia, glue ???

    In your cold storage area
    You will either install a water heater pump or filter system
    Which would be a good place as it will not freeze during extreme winter periods
    Keep up the great builds on your home.

    How long until your windows arrive?
    While you were waiting for the trusses and other supplies why didn't you finish with the building wrap?

    You should have used a water level, a clear hose almost full of water with a cork in each end. You can make it as long as you like, and or transfer you’re elevation by making a mark allowing you to move you’re mark wherever needed. I’m a retired ironworker, before lasers that is how we did it. The contractor hired an engineering outfit to put in a mark on each floor. All this for setting windows. When they came out with lasers I thought we already have that problem put to bed. Every finish ironworker carried a rolled up clear hose filled with water and capped with a cork. Every floor on a story job, all of the windows. I would take a dispatch on the 5th floor of a 66 story and wonder if I would top it out. As an example of how much we used it.

    Suggestion put perforated plastic drywall soffit vent up in the ceiling close to the house and soffit vents on end to keep from mold and convection happening. It’s a 2” vent from Home Depot that you install in the ceiling with your bird block vents for air flow close to the house out to the eave

    at first i thought this family is just too simple and taking too much time. But i took my time to keep on watching and skipping some. Later on I found out they are going in every detail and all trades of building off grid house solar etc. They are not just simple and humble but they are knowledgeable and expert. some other people may know more than them but no use of their knowledge if they cant share to needy ones. nice work.

    You guys are doing great. I guess my question would be if there is a small heat source on main structure of roof would there be a concern when snow slides to porch roof would there be a build up at top edge of porch as there is no heat source. I think your design is good and the weather will tell what happens. Anyway great job!!!!!!
