greetings! i’m yr local weird forest hermit, and i talk a lot about my chickens and mental health on here.
i make things and i love drone & doom metal. i’m queer trans man, pronouns are he/him. i’m a lazy heathen (which i don’t talk a lot about here) and my main man is freyr.
i’m autistic and I have ADHD and C-PTSD.
i love to live like a grandma, my special interest is iron age history, i'm a huge nerd and i play a lot of video games.
so it seems pretty clear vice is trying to get outrage clicks on its latest mastodon article.
this is a good opportunity to give 'counter promotion' a try
here is a good article to circulate instead of the vice article:
What’s going on currently:
I’m building a proper insulated workshop on my property while still working out of my kitchen (which is less than ideal)
There are models to be retouched, new molds to be made, toys to be poured and my own health to juggle. Things take time!
Don’t mistake the lack of stock drops for lack of work, I’m doing my best to have everything done sometime in July (still TBD!)
Just letting you guys know what’s going on. ❤️
half of this is covered by a tarp, but the foundation is almost done by now.
three days ago i had nine holes in the ground, today i have this!
we put concrete pillars in the dug holes, filled the remaining space w/ gravel. put a sheet on the ground, covered with more gravel. anchored planks on the concrete pillars, built a wooden frame on top of it. built compartments out of OSB board and planks for the insulation to be put inside and then covered w/ the floor boards.
i’m honestly so stoked to be be learning this skill. i’m still a complete novice and getting help from others, but i still know the basics and it feels so fucking cool! powertools have always intimidated me but i’m learning to use them and it’s so much fun. all of this is so good to know from a self-sufficiency/homesteading POV too.

A silly instance of Mastodon for queer folk and non-queer folk alike. Let's be friends!
