Pictures of the new place

 Just a few pics of the new place. This is the front yard. I was told that deer graze on the lawn and rest under the trees in the background. And they can be seen from the two big picture windows in the living room.
 This is at the very end of the hay pasture looking towards the house ( which is located in the grove of trees just a little to the left of the picture.
 Old milking barn. The place was a dairy farm back in the 1960's, The inside of the barn needs a lot of cleaning up, but once it's cleaned it will make a good area for the goats and chickens. The upstairs was once used for the caretaker many years ago. There is no hope in saving the upstairs so it will not be utilized.

This road is behind the barn which is going up a hill. It goes quite aways till it comes to another road that you can only access either by foot, horseback or an ATV.
 Taken from the other side of the house. There is about 20 acres that has been taken over with blackberry bushes. And if you know about blackberry bushes, you know how fast and thick they can take over anything! Goats will be turned out to hopefully start making a dent in the forest of blackberry bushes.
 This was taken from inside the house looking out. Not bad scenery huh!
This road is up behind the house going up another hill. This one is going to require some work to make it where it can be driven on.

While driving the Gator on the one road up behind the barn I noticed some poo piles. After a bit of thinking about it I concluded the poo belong to bears!  There is a lot of deer poo all over. Yup, there is a lot of wildlife there. The only critter I am concerned about will be the mountain lions.  

Tomorrow I will post more pictures. I am pretty exhausted right now and am going to vegetate the rest of the evening. 

Until next time.............................


  1. The views are almost overwhelming beautiful!

  5. WOW! What a location! You must be excited if not very tired by now.
    The views are spectacular and the house looks very cozy in amongst the trees and hills.
    Good time to move I'd say. The weather is cooler and you don't have to worry about too much maintenance till spring. Catch your breath and take it all in.

  11. Damn, woman - you did GOOD! That place has your name written all over it...and it's HUGE!
    How's the pasture fencing? Will you be able to move everybody in with no significant changes or updates? How far is it from your current place?
