He nods, though it's hard to grasp this big numbers, just how much they can do before it'd run out. Albeit that likely would be the same even if he'd gotten more education, simply for the strangeness of planning past your lifetime. “I'd like a stone tower one day. With a light on top, so we'll always find home in the forest” he muses. Lighthouse on top of greenhouse and all the other small additions.

"A lighthouse sounds like a cool idea. I've never heard of one in a forest before, but we might as well try it at least."

"Yeah. We'll have to make sure we don't let our plants grow wild, mind, don't want to cause a mess."

“We could dig a trench around the perimeter, fill it with stones so roots don't go everywhere. Would make a good base for a fence too.” In the greenhouse it's easy to contain, he'll just have to figure out a way to automatic water it. Outside they'll have to watch it closer, or just find plants from here they can resettel.

"That sounds like a good idea." Local plants would definitely be cool too, if they can manage it.

"Um, aside from weed in the garden?" He runs a hand through his messy hair. "Hot water, maybe even a hot tub or something since we have no one to tell us we can't. Hell, we could build ourselves a gym or a playground or something if we wanted to!" The sheer degree of freedom they've acquired suddenly hits him and he grins. "I wonder what a room for practicing shapeshifting would look like . . ."

"Hot water sounds great" Not that he minds the lake, loves the ocean all the same, but a hot bath is a luxury he barely ever had. And the kid joins in the grin, because this new reality has a lot of freedom alright. "Lots of mirrors and obstacles?" An parkour course would be nice anyway, to keep in shape, test things out.

"Yeah! And tunnels, maybe, and some kind of climbing wall . . ." It'll take a while to set everything up, but at least it's a goal.

A long while to set this up – they'll pretty much be busy just lugging wood and parts for quite a while. Though it's all a good distraction, something to fill the days. Time that'll help Daniel to get used to shifting, to make it safe for him to be around people. Just because he had less instincts didn't mean there wasn't a chance of hunger getting the better of him.

Dealing with the urge to eat anything new is definitely an issue for Palmer, so he'll be checking in with Daniel about that regularly. Especially since they'll be doing a fair bit of work with all this, which would definitely make them hungry.

Palmer knows very well how hard it is to get Daniel to eat properly, so he's not exactly surprised that it's continued in his new state. He'll just have to see what he can do about it.

One day this will be better, just takes more time. Years probably, but they have that, all it could possible need. Palmer already does good just reminding him, making sure something is available – carefully teaching him how to hunt for himself. At least they passed a first night, dawn slowly breaking on the horizon.

My internet is being hopelessly slow for reasons I can't figure out, don't worry too much if I disappear off and on.
