I have never written a blog in my life. I've never needed to, but a thought has come to mind. I have given myself a challenge to build all three homesteads without using gold. UNLESS it's necessary. But even then gold does not have to be used. 

Cutting the logs myself will take quite a while, but in the end, I have used no gold. Materials for inside the house can either be found, collected off of animals or stolen. Again, not a single gold coin would be used. So perhaps I should stick to using no gold to make the challenge a ligitmate challenge. 

When I have completed part of the house I have chosen to do, I shall write about it and include how long it took me to aquire the materials. Given, the small house and furnishings outside will not be included in this. 

Happy Building to Myself!
