We retired and moved to the Big Island of Hawaii in November 2019, built a bamboo home on 5 acres and moved in May of 2021. We are mostly off-grid with solar power and a water catchment (for rain water). This site shares our journey to live here as well as our island life style, including landscaping, gardening and craft projects.
