If you would like to help support us but can't really afford to throw money away(Most of us can't), and if there is something that's made out of plastic that could possibly be 3d printed. Look on thingiverse and see if you can find a 3d printable file. Then come back here and have me print it for you :) It will help us by bringing a little extra money and hopefully you can get your item for cheaper than you can buy it at a store.
If your operating on a non budget like we are making the most of what you have and finding as much free stuff to use as possible is essential to getting what you need built and usable. it doesn't need to be perfect. I just needs to work.

My third trimester of pregnancy totally snuck up on me this month. It’s been exhausting growing a little human. However, it has been great getting our bed back. Sleep was especially hard when I was pregnant with Naomi and we were still co-sleeping with Elliora. She was a crazy sleeper and I always had to work around her just to roll over. Elliora did not want to leave our bed because it was all she had ever known and it took months of work and even bribery to get her interested in sleeping in a separate bed.
We are so excited to introduce you to our newest addition to the Herrera Clan!! Chani Herrera!! She is a 3 year old German Shepherd and we recently adopted her from a pet rescuer.
Camper life has been quite luxurious. We ended up downsizing some more…still not enough though. But the place that we are at allows us to keep our office trailer as storage space. So, by this point, all we really have is seasonal clothes and recreational things like camping gear, tools ect.
The biggest concern we hear from family members about our situation is about the kids. And it’s usually ridiculous things like: they’ll have no space to run around and is there room for their toys?
As many of you know we are a bit adventurous and we chose to jump straight into the Yurt Lifestyle....Yeah that was hard. granted we downsized significantly. We still didn't get rid of enough stuff. Further expounding on our issues I will admit I poorly executed the building of our yurt. I did not give the proper time to completing the yurt in a way that would have mad life much more liveable. Given this we have made a video outlining some of the pitfalls and how you can avoid them. Our hope is that you can learn from our mistakes.
This is not yet a complete list of everything needed to build a yurt. I am still in the proses of building and documenting.
Moving into a yurt because you have no choice that hasn't been pre-built and built according to more traditional standards will probably yield less than favourable results. The yurt really turned into a nightmare. Not that we are giving up on it. We are rethinking how we will be going about it. Here is a video outlining only one of the issues you may encounter. I will make a video later going into more detail about different issues and how to fix them.
David and I have looked around at a few different plots of land in the MO area the past few months, but can't seem to get this one place off our minds. We were originally going to buy it but with some of our finances being thrown up in the air about a month ago, we decided to start out renting.
