Category: DIY Prepper Projects

The DIY Prepper Projects category is the heart of this site.  Everything I do on this site is based around diy prepper projects to help you become more resilient.

I wasn’t always a DIY prepper, but when I started I fund it to be addictive.  It lets me have things I couldn’t afford to buy, makes me feel a sense of accomplishment, and builds confidence.

I find this category to be my favorite, I think it is the most fun.  However, its Do It Yourself not Gospel, I am not showing HOW TO do things, but rather how I DID things.  Feel free too disagree with how I do things.  I would prefer you comment on or show how to do it better rather just be negative though.

My lovely bride calls it my murse a lovely portmanteau of Man-Purse.

How to Build a Fence

I needed a fence, both to get my dog off of a chain and because a neighbor dog killed 5 of my 8 chickens. It is true that Tennessee law allows a livestock owner to kill a dog that is killing livestock, that’s not really an option for me at this time. Besides with a fence I can get a Great Pyrenees that my lovely bride wants, as well as some dwarf milk goats that I want.
