Wecome to Dragonwood Chronicles

Tucked away deep in the woods at the southern edge of the Tug Hill region of New York. Dragonwood is our off-grid sanctuary. Six acres of pond and gardens bordered by forest on three sides.

The project began in 1995, when after a long search, Debe and I purchased the property from a local logger. To date we have built a cabin, a bridge, out house, two sheds in addition to expansive gardens and stone work. We have a generator, propane lights, refrigerator and grill, a wood stove and modest solar system. A dug well and small stream suitable for watering gardens and other needs and a nearby spring for drinking water.

The Dragonwood Chronicles will serve to document the project with photographs and notes. Future projects will include additions to the cabin, a root cellar and a studio building.

Comments and questions are always welcome.

We enjoy hearing from people who visit Dragonwood Chronicles. Please feel free to leave a comment or ask questions.

Dragonwood Chronicles - Hiatus

I will be out of the loop for an indefinate period. Blog posts will be limited during this period. I expect to resume regular posts sometime during late winter or early spring.

Keep your powder dry and be of good spirit!

Hi there. I hope you're still reading comments despite your downtime from writing. My wife and I have had a real eye-opening since buying our first home here in Syracuse last year. Having moved from Ithaca to take a fulltime job at the university here, we're both looking at each other and our two beautiful boys, saying, "What the heck is all of this about? What are we doing living in the city, working 9-5, feeling detached from the earth and from ourselves?" We have been investigating what it would mean to walk away from it and live the life we want to be living. I wonder if we could visit with you sometime soon, just to say hi and to ask how you did it... and do it? Please me in touch if you can. best wishes to you, Kevin. (I'll leave my wife's email since mine is a public one, attached to university. Her name is Aimee -- aimee@villagebirth.com. If you're interested, her website is www.villagebirth.com.)
