The Closing

DSC_0098 DSC_0099


It’s official!  We closed on the property today.  We are the very happy owners of almost 8 acres out in the woods.  We have a stream that borders the lot where we can hopefully catch some trout.  We have a pretty hilly landscape to build our underground house into.  There should be enough trees to at least start building our home in the spring.  There is also plenty of room for kids to play and gardens and orchards and whatever else we decide to have.  I am working on the lot plans a bunch these days, so hopefully I’ll have something to share soon.  The three years we spent looking was well worth it.  I couldn’t be happier!
