Farm shots

As promised!!



DH heading out to start skidding the logs back to the barn.
This is the older JD tractor the 1950 model A the newer one the 1951 is in several pieces in the garage at home.


The field with the woods in the background. Didn't want to walk that far as I forgot snowshoes and truck would get stuck!! This is where we are dragging the logs to cut up later for firewood.

The barn-we replaced the windows in most of the frames-they were house windows-still needs a bit of work!!


The house-not liveable-no windows/doors for many yrs so inside pretty icky!!
Makes a nice picture though!!

I've always wanted to live out in the country like that!

Looks like you have a nice big place!

That house looks scary! YIKES!

Nice pictures Gail! I like the look of the barn. It gives you that rural, country feeling.

Its about 50 minutes from our house-One BIL owns 94 acres on one side, another owns 50 acres on the other side and they also on some across the road.
The woods abut the property that DH grew up on.
The only bad thing-no bathroom!! (except the great outdoors!!)

That looks wonderful! I just want take dogs there and let them run all over the place.
Shame about the house - is it not fix-uppable at all?

Are you going to re-finish the house, or build a new one?
Gorgeous property. It looks awesome.

The house has been in this condition for at least 20 yrs. Inside there um isn't much left. Upstair-I don't up their myself as who knows what animals live up there (raccoon poop all over the place)! There is a small basement I was in there once-won't go there myself either!! We talk about burning it down but thats not going to happen this yr. No building planned. The barn needs some structural work-its been cabled together for about a yr now. We have to find someone who works on old barns like this to have an evaluation done.

Oh I just love stuff like that............such history! When Jerry and I moved into this place, we found a beautiful china creamer buried WAY back on some shelves going downstairs into the basement........I cleaned it up and proudly display it now...........I'd love to know the story behind it, etc.

Have you contacted any of the local fire departments? They often do "controlled burns" to practice firefighting. Maybe they'd be interested in burning the house. They'd get the training and you get it taken care of!

Ok - that looks cold. I would probably like it in the summer, but snow - ICK!
