A Simple Life at a Farm in Maine

Inspired by legendary back-to-the-landers Scott and Helen Nearing, Kate NaDeau lives simply and seasonally in a handbuilt stone house on a twenty-six-acre Maine hillside.

Kate’s collection of vintage tools, appliances, and other decor are all items that help create a wabi-sabi environment (see page 48) in her home. Kate uses the woodstove for baking, but in summer it doubles as counter space for her many garden-related projects.
