Homesteading is all about self-sufficiency and keeping your footprint minimal. With proper planning and some practice, you should be able to achieve complete self-sufficiency in most climates. Some parts of the world make it increasingly difficult to homestead with 100% self-sufficiency. In other cases, there are regulations that require you have certain amenities such as heat. With that being said, an experienced homesteader can survive every winter simply burning firewood. That’s how every person lived before the invention of gas and electric fireplaces.

There are so many benefits that come hand in hand with living in a rural location. You tend to benefit from the fresh country air, more space, lower crime rates, and closer communities. However, if you already live in the country, you might want to consider investing in a second property in a more urban location. Why? Well, there are benefits to city living too! Having somewhere to stay in the city provides you with accommodation that is much closer to all sorts of entertainment and amenities. By having a second property in the city, you can benefit from the best of both worlds.

Our properties are also the spaces where we should feel most safe in the world. They are the places that we relax, switch off, and sleep at night and render ourselves most vulnerable. So the thought of someone invading this space is also terrifying. This is why you need to protect your property and introduce preventative security measures that will ensure your space remains safe and accessible to only you and your loved ones.

We’re all working longer hours than before, and that means that we really need our homes to be places where we can relax, unwind, and restore some energy so that we can tackle the following day with gusto.

We all want that feeling of “home” in our lives. Yet most people would agree there’s a huge difference between walking into a house and walking into a “home”.  Indeed, we all want to create a feeling of home for ourselves and our family, yet this is indeed something that must be created.
