New Beginnings

Tonight may very well mark a very new beginning for our family.
Tonight, we accepted the counter offer to our initial offer for what will hopefully become our new home, all things willing...

It's an older home, much older, actually, than it looks but has been nicely updated outside. The inside will still need some updating, but I have full faith in my wife to take care of that. She works wonders in that department! I'll have to update you more on that when the time comes, but for now, suffice it to say it meets all of our needs but needs a bit of "lipstick".Out back the property is in good shape with a play house, a well pump house (Yep... well irrigation water comes with the property.) And a couple of mature fruit trees. One looks to be cherry I think. Anyway... off topic... It has a wonderful deep covered porch that looks out to an unobstructed view west. Great for sunsets I'll wagerAnd a little further out back... well, that's where my domain will begin. The property sits on 2.62 acres of Agriculturally zoned real estate. Undeveloped, underused and waiting to be brought into it's own.
In addition to the land, and the well irrigation rights, this property also carries 30 shares of pasture irrigation water. It's only ten minutes from downtown Ogden, where our kids go to school and where a great farmers market is every summer. Basically, it's everything we had hoped for.

There will be much more info to come, and planning... oh the planning. I hope you'll enjoy the journey with me.
More to come!

Congratulations, that's a huge lot! Are you going to be able to raise some animals? I'm really excited for you but sad your neighbors drove you out!

Thanks for the well wishes everyone. We're really excited and looking forward to all the changes and challenges.
Mostly, I'm looking forward to the fun of planning and developing a small town homescale farm.
I wouldn't say that our neighbors drove us out necessarily, but they made it abundantly clear to us that we were the round peg in their very square holes...
It's all for the best, life sends us where we belong!
Take care all...

That is AWESOME P~.

Looks just like the kind of spread we have been dreaming of.

White hot with jealousy. :)

I hope it all aligns perfectly for you. Being located close to the school also helps reduce the cost of transport. Gotta love that benefit.

Here's hoping your hens come home to roost soon. :)

Ooooh, it looks fabulous. I love the covered porch. That says summer kitchen to me! Have recently been toying with ideas for what I would want if I had a blank canvas (and the lottery winnings to fund it with) for building a house. Covered porch that could also be used as a summer/canning kitchen is one of the first things I wrote down.
