Jason and Lorraine. In 2016 we sold most of our belongings and left the city in southern California to start a small homestead in the mountains of North Carolina. We left the city in search for a more minimal and intentional life. We became passionate about growing our own food and knowing what exactly is in our food after I (Jason) became diagnosed with cancer. Now 8 years in remission we as a family are on a journey to live our passions.
We document our life on YouTube videos to inspire others to get out of their comfort zone and not be afraid of change. We started our own online general store where we have available the things we make and use in real life. Thank you for following us on this incredible life changing journey!

    one of the things i like most about your channel is that you dont lie to your audience. You straight up say that youve never done a bunch of this stuff and you earn a lot of respect for that. Good video jason.

  2. Cassity ART says:

    This is so necessary for growing season. Even farm marketers can harvest during the week, clean and prep then sell on Saturday. Question: What about condensation? (which is needed for storing fresh plants-food). Will you install a drain?

  3. Sand Hollow Homestead says:

    Jason, our large freezers at the potatoes processing plant I worked at had 6inch walls with galvanized metal on each side. The floor was 1 foot thick insul. With a metal covering. I think your cooler will be great at almost 6 inches. Best regards, Sandy.

  4. Pittsburgh Flip says:

    For a non structural wall, couldn't you have gone with bigger stud bays? That could let you use full panels of the foamboard insulation. If you skin with your plywood and use spray foam as an adhesive, you'd be making what is known as a stressed skin panel, which is actually super strong!

  5. Kathleen Perdue says:

    That is going to be a great cold room Jason . Yes, isn't it like the Lord to prepare us to do the jobs he knows we need to do and you are open to his leading which shows you are his godly man. God bless you and your sweet family 😍

  6. Dave Sims says:

    I really enjoy your videos and your down to earth personality!
    Looking forward to seeing how this project goes. Hope to do something similar in the future!

    When is day 3 coming?! Can’t wait to see more. Jason, you are truly a craftsman. I’m not giving that compliment lightly, a little of my family history – some of my family are professional craftsmen, my grandfather Chancey and my uncle Boyd, my grandfather’s son, have passed on, but my cousin Bill, the son of my uncle who passed, is still a professional craftsman, he sold his contracting business when he ‘retired,” to teach woodworking at a local HS to pass on his knowledge. Now he’s again ‘retired,” and still building!
    Growing up around these kind men, I see them in you. You are truly gifted and kind like my uncle and cousin. My grandfather was gifted, but dang was he an ornery old guy lol, Slim was his nickname.

    One more family story, the woodworking gene was passed on to my second cousin Lisa. She has almost single handedly transformed 2 Skoolies and one vintage trailer for her family all while raising 6 children – yes she’s a SuperWoman! The only help she had was the electrical from her husband. I wish I could share pictures. Her work would make you proud! She may have an IG, if she does I’ll try and find you the link. I think you would enjoy seeing her work. 💕😊

    Jason, long time viewer and first time commenter and all that stuff…. Just had to chime in about a bit of building practice with wood and insulation in the situation. It is better practice not to run the plywood flooring to the studs, under the wall panels breaking the moisture barrier. Set the foam wall panels directly on top of the floor foam panels. Flash the joint. Then install the wood flooring, flash it, then the wood wall panels (if that's the plan). Think of it like a foam bubble within a foam bubble within a stud frame. each bubble protects the bubble inside. Otherwise the plywood to the studs will act as a conduit for moisture and heat transfer especially if the same piece of plywood is exposed to cool temperatures inside and warm moist temperatures from the outside where it touches the studs. That is a formula for mold and rot.

  9. Aubrey King says:

    Every job teaches you. So very true. I’ll share one small trick I learned about 25 yrs ago the hard way. In short, always run plywood so that the face grain runs perpendicular to its frame support (like a joist, rafter or stud). Running in the other direction is very weak and it will bend.

  10. Lauren McW says:

    I have always loved watching people work and with the accelerated camera speeds, you get to see so much more than in real life. Loved what you said about every job preparing you for the next. I think my mom teaching me how to sew and take care of the machine predisposed me to love construction of any kind. I enjoyed watching you build Justin and Rebekah's greenhouse, too.

    YOU HAVE A NEW SUB– i saw your work over on Justins channel and i really like the way you not only show your work but also explain why and the reasoning behind it– i hope to see many more of your vids and that you hit 50,ooo subs real soon…many blessings …Glo

  12. Lauriewind says:

    Dear Jason, I am noticing, that my thumbs-up does not count. You got an idea, why this is happening?
    greetings from Austria. Love your work and art, besides the nice group of people your in…..

  13. Nandi Saand says:

    Hmm. Why no fire blocks on the walls? These are 2×4 blocks you put between the studs, about 4ft up. Along with structural support, they keep fire from going from floor to ceiling behind walls.
