Building An Earthship In Darfield, B.C.

We are a family of five living in Darfield, BC.
Our house is six hundred square feet in total and we are feeling cramped.

We have decided to build an earthship!

So starts the adventure ...

Newton Construction in Gingerbread

An off-hand remark to me by Chris several weeks ago about wanting to make a gingerbread house from scratch with the kids, somehow led to Chris and the kids elbow deep in ginger and icing sugar while I ran around Barriere on last minute errands on December 23rd!

Stephen had every intention of writing the step by step directions but with skiing, visiting, and playing, bedtimes came far too early!  I think he took most of the pictures, though.  The recipe came from What's up Kids magazine and the design from an online pattern that Chris found.  It was an amazing recipe.  Very tasty and structurally sound.  However, it didn't last too long...unlike brittle store-bought gingerbread house kits, it was too tempting...everytime somebody walked by, a gingerbread man lost his buttons!  This led to an unfortunate collapse of the chimney stack.  Fortunately the gingerbread men were long gone before they saw the demise of the back half of the house...yum...

So here are the photos!
