The house is about 30 miles from our current house.
We would not move there. We would keep the current house for our home and the farmhouse would be our “retreat” location. It’s also where we would have chickens and could have a big garden. The current owner (did I say in the previous post that the house they want to buy is across the highway – probably 1/2 mile from the house we looked at?) . . he said if it was ok, he’d just keep the chickens there. We could care for them when we’re there and they would care for them when we aren’t there. We could have all the eggs we want and they would use/sell the rest. We have been buying our eggs from them already.
He said his boys would cut the grass for us so we wouldn’t have to worry about that.
He said he would use his big tractor to till up a garden for us.
Because of being able to get to the interstate from the east side (we’re on the west side now), it’s probably about 15 miles farther from Addie but I could see them coming and spending weekends/time off more there than here since they all like to tinker around in the woods or fish in the pond.
Like I said . . it’s a long ways from being a done deal but it’s fun to think about it and plan.
