    Just wanted to say thank you for commenting on my blog. I remember watching this video earlier and thinking, “now that’s the life.” Your children are beautiful, by the way. And they seem extremely happy. There also seems to be a peace around you and your wife. God bless and I hope you have a good holiday (without lots of stuff!) 🙂

    I’m curious, 3 x cabins, why not 1 x house? My one house is not that much bigger than the 3 combined, so I am curious as to how you have it set up and why not combine the 3.

    It seems you are all very happy with your lifestyle and that is the greatest achievement. A great life for the children.

    House is beautiful and I am seriously considering it myself! Was wondering how much it cost and advise as how to get started would be great!
