What do you think of the new blog design? I’ve been working with Laura from Pixel Me Designs and am so pleased. Laura’s been wonderful to work with so far: approachable, responsive to questions, and creative! We still have a few tweaks to make over the next couple of weeks, but I am thrilled with the new design. I hope you like it, too!

Life in a barn
I also wanted to let you know that I wrote a guest post for Kelli’s blog The Sustainable Couple on Friday. If you’re curious about the passive house we’re building and how my husband and I got started on the sustainable living path out here in Eastern Iowa – pop over to read it! I had a lot of fun writing that post and opened up a bit about life details I haven’t shared recently on SimplifyLiveLove.

The Sustainable Couple is an awesome blog. Kelli’s written a couple of guest posts for me {an introduction to her urban homestead and a garden update featuring her awesome mesh bottom garden basket} and volunteered to write another post in a few weeks {cuz I’m gonna need help as we got some bad news about Sara’s hip dysplasia.} But more on that later. Be on the look out for more great stuff from Kelli here at Simplify, Live, Love and pop over to her blog to read my post!

Here’s a direct link to my post on The Sustainable Couple: Iowa Mom & Blogger Discusses Passive House and Living in a Barn.

Happy Day, Friends. Make it a good one. <3

    I am very interested in your barn restoration. wondering more about the skeleton or framing of the barn both up and down. We are looking to raise a barn up and replace the entire foundation as well as making it clear span on the main level down below. Yours looks great. Same barn roof style. Some idea of costs involved. any help would be appreciated
