So I’m sorry for the lack of posts this week. It’s been a monkey wrench kind of a week for us. The hubby and I found an 1858 stone farmhouse on 5 acres that we’ve fallen in love with, and so all of our thoughts and energy have gone into figuring out if it’s the right next move for us to make. I’ve wanted a farmhouse for years and my husband loves the land and space, but is this big city girl really ready to live in the country? The real country. There are two neighbors within a 100 yards of the house, but then no one for at least a mile. We currently live in a small city of 20,000 now, which is small by a lot of standards. But this farmhouse is in a city of 4,900, so although it’s not typical “small town”, it is much smaller than the big city of 1.5 million where I grew up.
The property contains a very large 3 story barn that would be perfect to turn into a workshop on one side and a store front on the other. There is also a horse stable and pasture on the property (I’d love horses some day) and a chicken coop. And a view of a lake in our backyard. Yeah, I know. Sounds incredible, doesn’t it?
So, do we or don’t we? That is the question.
