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.

Ok, so this is basically a shameless plug for our son, Kevin II also known as KII. He has a carving studio on Mud Mill Rd. in Brewerton, NY just north of Syracuse. He does a variety of subject matter, although the bears are the most popular. He also does signs and mailbox posts, as well as benches, tables and totems.
I will be helping him this summer and in return he will be helping me with a couple of large stone projects.
Anyone interested in a carving may contact me at kabbott765@gmailcom or if you are in Central New York his studio is open most days during the summer.
