THIS IS MY STRONG HOLD. THIS IS WHERE I DRAW A LINE IN THE SAND. IT IS HERE AND NOW THAT I MAKE MY STAND.
Big Mawmaw's Home Place

I used to go to auctions and buy big loads of stuff to resale at the local flea market. That took up all of my Sat. and Sundays and I just can't afford the time any longer, so it's time to get rid of all the stuff that has been stored in my storage building since last fall. I hauled 2 van loads to Goodwill today and I mean BIG LOADS. Boy it sure feels good to get rid of that stuff. I have a 12 by 24 insulated building that is made of metal with 2inch insulation and I have a better plan for it than just holding worthless junk. MAN CAVE !! I need a place to get away from all the noise and clutter around here. Oliva is the kind of woman that likes to move furniture around, not just in the room but all over the house. She will move one bedroom into the next and so on, it just kills me. I like for everything to have a place and be in it's place forever. I hate change. My plan is to make me a room ( Hideout ) down in the building, a little paint and a door with windows will make things just right for me. I have bought a small wood stove to go in the "Cave", I will have a desk, all my books and magazines and a good chair to relax. I will mostly be using the "Cave late at night after the kids have gone to bed, Katie would never stand for daddy being out of her sight while she's awake. I also plan to have a renewable energy system, micro hydro from my pond overflow. I will post more infomation and pictures as they become available. I hope to spend most of the weekend working on clean up though. This could also serve as a great place when the grid is down, we would have the stove for heat and cooking and have power too. Will probably have a bed of some sort just in case I like it better that I think. haha!!
Just a guy that was born and raised in West Virginia and moved to Kentucky trying to raise a family on a small farm. We have goats, ducks, chickens, lots of dogs and raise a garden. Trying to live life simple and as peacful as possible. It's not as easy as it sounds.
