FROM            GROUND UP


A collection of over a decade of tried and true tales to help you through the construction of cabins, a successful hosting business and the life that you want!
hello, my name is Simone

When I heard a friend say that she wanted the same thing but had no idea where to start, I knew that I needed to do something about it. I had heard it over and over and while I had mostly resolved it with an empathetic nod, I couldn't anymore. 


The wish to bypass her self doubts and concerns and make her brain believe that it is indeed possible, and - dang it, yes you can do it! - show her the way, is what made me create this Blog. 


I am SO excited to share with you all that I have learned throughout over a decade of work on purchasing a beautiful slice of raw land, building a home and turning it into a profitable business. 


Wether you are looking for construction survival inspiration or tips on building a successful short term rental business, I got you!

From a non-writer, starting from the ground up, to you.
