It is offical! The farm is ours!!!

Just got done finalizing things with the owner today!

We now have 107 acres of beautiful pasture,a small amount of woods, and two ponds in addition to our current place.




We are nervous as it means going back into debt but DH has long wanted to expand without having to involve his dad or brothers so this is really a dream come true for him. I'm along for the ride and the new house we will be building. Thanks to pinterest, DH has his work cut out for him on the new place lol

ooo.. build a big mudroom for me!!!!! we live in an old poorman's farmhouse that my hubby's great-grandpa built and have redone every room, but every room has 3 different purposes (no joke). My kitchen serves as the mudroom and it's half taken up by husband's 3 different sets of farmboots, coveralls, 3 different work coats, 3 boys' snowsuits/wintercoats/hats/boots, gunshelves/bullets, calf replacer, and on and on and on! And my boys are 4,3,1 and baby is young, but they are gonna get bigger and their clothes are gonna get bigger! agh! I want a mudroom sooooooooo bad. It's worth it to build a really nice one with a heater so you can dry boots and whatnot. I'd also put lockers in there to hang individual kids' coats, suits, boots in (we had them as kids and we'd also put our backpacks in there as well, but we'll homeschool most likely). Then you should put a big bench along the wall for kids/hubby to sit and put on outerwear.

Congrats on the farm! It's pretty awesome to look out as far as you can see and know you own all that! I get all Bonanza about it. What an amazing blessing and amount of work. Congrats again.

Congrats! Your pinterest comment made me laugh. My DH would hate pinterest by the end of that project.

Congratulations!!! That sounds amazing! I think my husband was super happy when we decided not to build and to buy a place that already had a house on it, there's no way he could've kept up with all the ideas I had in my head! As it is on our new place we're starting out from scratch with only a small shed for a garden shed, so I'm constantly talking about where we're going to put the garden and how big and where to put the berry patches I want, and where to build our new barn, put pastures in, etc etc.
