Back in 2004 I started writing about my adventures in fixing up houses on the internet. A lot of things have changed since then, with me, with my houses, and with the internet. These days I am basically a cranky old man trapped in a slightly less old woman’s body. The internet has changed and I am staunchly refusing to change with it. You won’t find any algorithms here, or feeds, or ads, or social media. Just good old-fashioned stories about a woman drinking beer and building shit, and living an unexpected life.

Absolutely gorgeous. Best wishes to you. Enjoy the journey.
Sigh that sucks. Hopefully it will all work out for the best. We’re all pulling for you! Beautiful picture BTW.
Wonderful words of wisdom.
And those trees are so beautiful.
“Happy is the person who finds wisdom and gains understanding. For the profit of wisdom is better than silver, and her wages are better than gold…Wisdom is a tree of life.”
That Exterra will come in handy for something besides hauling stuff then! Beautiful actually, and winter is only a few months out of the year. (Says she who hates winter). And when you crest the hill and see that beautiful house it will all be worth it!
Can you say 4 wheeler!?!?!? Functional and fun too…necessary for someone who has this much property…
I think those gentle rolling hills are going to be filled with donkeys, goats, and chickens. Animals are fun, too!
It wouldn’t be an adventure if it was easy.
Hey, if this really is “the place” “for good” then everything about it is the long road. No need to rush. Your grandkids will understand if it takes a little longer to finish than planned.
I’d love to live in a place like that.
