Even though we closed on our new home yesterday we spent the night in the motorhome since we don't have any furniture yet. Plus we have to keep the motorhome warm so the pipes don't freeze. When I got up this morning it was 6 degrees. I'm sitting here at Starbucks till it warms up then we'll head over the hill to our new home. This first photo was taken last Spring, the landscape is more barren in the winter with all the leaves off the trees.
The house is perched on a hill on one and one third acres with a nice view of the local mountains. The main level (middle) has the kitchen, dining, living, one bedroom and a bath. The upper level has a loft and the main bedroom and a bath. The lower level has a walk out basement with a large room and bathroom on one side and a garage and workshop area on the other side. Gary saw a lift system we can get at Harbor Freight to bring up groceries from the lower to middle level, more about those plans later.
Years ago when Gary and I were first married I saw an add for free bricks. I had an old decrepit Cadillac and drove 20 miles to get the bricks and loaded them in the trunk. After a while the back of the car started sinking lower and lower. So I started loading the bricks in the back seat floor and then the front seat floor. Then I drove home very slowly since my car was overloaded and swaying back and forth. Gary came home and almost had a fit saying it wasn't safe to haul all those bricks in a car. But I knew if I had waited someone else would have gotten the free bricks. See what I mean about where there is a will there is a way. Ha.
