      when this show is done, which probably will never happen, since they still don't have an in ground pool yet, you can star watching "I am Jazz" ... yet another bull shit show for people to get sucked into.

      No they're not. they still have all that off grid stuff to do.. like making pear and wild plum preserves and camping in Witch Woods and FINALLY learning how to deal with snakes.. Yet, I am guessing there will be improvements they will have to make right after they 'essentially' complete the indoors. That dock needs work.. and tree trimming and gardening and and.. well you know..

    The "Wild plum" looks like a persimmon tree to me. We had them in our yard when I was growing up. We had plums as well, and there's a difference between the two.

    As I watch this, I wondered how anyone could be prejudice or racist? I'm just an old BLACK 64 year old Navy veteran who has been following you from the beginning. I love you guys. And the kids? precious! I'm a grandpa of 9 between my wife and I. 😊 Watching you today made me realize the fact that I know a lot of WHITE people who are good people!! So many see color of skin. That's sad. I served 4 years of sea duty on a ship with 450 men. 300 of them were WHITE. I can't tell you how close we were on the ship. We did everything together. Including liberty time off the ship. We were shipmates. If you served on a Navy ship, you know that shipmates become family. I say that to say this: "Wake up people!!! This evil world is lying to us. Turn off the TV. There's some good white people in this world. People with love inside of them. The same applies to black people. Same applies to Asian people, etc. etc. We must renew our mind and delete the propaganda. Love is NOT a skin color. Let's end the orchestrated division and come together in an attempt to erase the false propanganda that has been pushed for so long. It's all a lie to divide us. Reality is that I NEVER see color when dealing with people. I see PEOPLE! Period! Sorry. The thought came to mind while watching this episode. I hope it helps to expose the lies a bit. I send good energy to all who reads this". 💙🥂

      We all bleed red, sir. And thank you for your service. I never truly understood racism until I lived in Florida. Couldn't understand why some people hated me for the color of my skin, white. As well as my faith, Jewish. After a few years my mostly Black and Hispanic neighbors saw me as a neighbor with good intentions. It started when a kid across the street was sitting outside in the rain. Not on my watch! I was raised by a single mom and my neighbors always let us stay until someone came home to let us in. We called Mom and let her know where Trey was. We did homework, watched cartoons, and had snacks. I let mom know he was welcome anytime I was home and we became friends. Spent one Thanksgiving with them and still remember grandma's oxtail. It is tough talking about race, especially after the orange monster! Glad I was able to look at people and not the externals.

      @Geostruth, As I read this on Christmas Day, I want to say thank you and Merry Christmas to all. As a white older person, I appreciate your thoughts. It is nice to hear that not all white people are viewed as prejudice. Sometimes I feel lumped into a group, large group of people that sadly are missing out and wrong about their fellow human beings. Love IS the answer!!! Blind love. We need each other. This world is broken.

  • Steve May

    I vote for a permanent campsite in your woods with a tent pad, picnic table, fire pit, lantern hooks, and a permanent cable over the tent pad so you can put a tarp over the tent (high enough to stand up under). Maybe even some benches and/or a porch swing. It would be epic.

    Showing the work involved in putting on the “finishing touches” demonstrates just how much remains to be completed. You’ve worked so hard, and you’re persevering. That clip of when you cut out the window and the scene of just last year with the Christmas tree show the monumental accomplishment this home is. Have the best holiday available to you. Beau’s reaction to the tree was so precious too.

  • Giovanni Gutierrez

    Seeing you go through the woods and your inspiration to camp there was wonderful. Finding fruit trees maybe means that there are lots of other Agricultural surprises there. Imagine rehabilitating those treasures and feeding your family and maybe others. Sundown is truly magical there and it makes complete sense why you chose this part of the World. Thanks for sharing your busy, hectic and amazing life with us during this build. 2022 is going to be wonderful for you and for us all. Merry Christmas to all!

    Love, love, love the house! It’s turning out just perfect. Spencer has some mad construction skills, that’s for sure. Keep waiting for that bathroom shower tile though, so Kelsey doesn’t have to keep venturing out amongst the wildlife in the dead of night to shower. What a trooper! I think I could face down the coyotes, but the snakes? Um,....I don’t know bout them. 😬

    I can remember when you two just started, before your little ones were with us here in the world… you’ve come so far and have proven to be truly inspiring for those of us who have thought of following your example in whole or in part but may not have had the nerve to follow through. Thank you for not only showing us that it can be done, but allowing us the privilege of watching the love you have for each other and watching your family grow. Thank you, truly.

      @Lindsey Guberman , They got a lot done in there, but as far as I know they still can’t take a shower in there, I don’t think. But they are working on it. 😊

    Young couples need to watch all this. This is what life is about between a man and a woman. Were supposed to build a life together and stay together and build something that you can leave to your children and create generational wealth so each generation has it a little bit better than the last. And their will always be ups and downs but its part of the journey that we forge together. God bless you 2 and and you family and have a Merry Christmas 🎅 .

    We love watching y'all! I wanted to tell you on your recent video you said you found a wild plum tree, it's not a plum it's a persimmon tree. If you get the seed out and cut it open it will have a knife, fork or spoon inside and they say that's how to predict your winter weather!
    Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to y'all.....

    you should start a new family tradition of getting a live tree for christmas each year and then planting it on your property in the new year. you have some much land and those trees would become a living legacy of your stewardship of that land. Besides, you'd be able to point to those trees later in life and have so many wonderful memories, especially when your children a grown up and can look back and see the forest you created for them!
    just a thought...

      @Little Blue Cloud my parents used to do it for years up until they passed away. after 40 years in the same house, some of the trees were huge.

      Good luck getting invited. How does $150.00 per ticket sound for the tour. The cost of the ticket includes coffee and donuts ... so it is not so bad.

    You guys are amazing and an inspiration to all of us who wish to live a life "uncontained" :) Thanks for sharing your family's journey with all of us. You should try and do a collab with the Good Simple Living family!
