We are a modern family living on an 1890's homestead in Missoula, Montana. We live in a refurbished chicken coop that is quite snug and beautiful. We don't have a steady supply of water, but we make do with a homemade catchment system, a cistern, and an ancient water truck we occasionally fill up at Parks and Rec. when we are really in a pinch. We kinda live on the fringes, and like it fairly well. We are Andy (papa), Joanna (mama), Asa (four and a half year old), and Axel (one and a half year old). Oh, and we have chickens , about eighteen of them, and a cat named Licky.
