Homesteading projects are not only fun, they are rewarding when they can add another element of self-sufficiency to your arsenal.
DIY to Try has a collection of 15 homesteading project tutorials that are economical and add to the functionality of your homestead.
All of these projects can be done using reclaimed or re-purposed materials, which allows us to flex our improvising skills.
The tutorials are easy to follow, give precise instructions and tips for successful builds.
There are some great projects for prepping, like DIY oil lamps and a wind-powered water pump in the event that there’s a prolonged power outage.
Other helpful tutorials include gardening projects like a watering grid made out of PVC pipe and a greenhouse that can keep a garden growing year-round.
A particularly interesting project is the soda can solar heater-this is the perfect time of year to test one out!
