It’s a Done Deal



It’s officially a done deal.
We now own a horse farm.
We signed the papers on the Hooterville house this afternoon.
I’m still somewhat shell-shocked because it all happened so fast.  Approximately 6 weeks from start to finish!
After the closing, we spent more than three hours in Lowe’s loading up two carts with our first round of supplies…paint, tools,  a chain saw, new door locks, etc.



I don’t know why this makes me laugh so much…  Hubby has his first “farm tough” toy!

Tomorrow we’re off to WalMart to purchase a load of cleaning supplies.
Then the hard work begins.
I will be  updating you as often as possible on the progress.

Congrats!!! I can't wait to watch the city folks hitting the country trail. We did it - but only 5 acres.

You'll never want to live in a "neighborhood" again. Ever!!

Congrats on getting your new home. It should be an experience putting it all together again but I bet you will love the end results.

All the best to you, dear Shari, I have a feeling that you are going to love the results of changing this new place into being your own lovely cottage. Hugs, Cindy S. PS My only dissapointment is that I don't live close enough to come by and see it in person!

Oh, so this is your husbands Farm. All of my moves have been for my husband. Most of them were school or work related. This is an amazing project. I think I'd better put you at the top of my links on my sidebar. I don't want to miss a thing.

Love and Luck to you,
