O.T. - Found a House!!!!
#11
  Re: (...)
I’m happy to say we have a home!! Found the perfect place for us and it had ‘The Denhams’ written all over it!! One acre with a little cottage/farmhouse built in 1937 with quirky farmy kind of rooms and add ons. One bedroom/one bath, a large deck ready for my smoker and grill; a shop for Roy, and out buildings ready to morph into either a hen house or a pig house. And, for Roy Rogers – a John Deere Ride on mower!! All fenced and cross-fenced. It is painted a bilious blue with royal blue trim………will be gone quickly. Here’s a couple of pictures.

This is looking from the deck - gorgeous horses across the road


Our Bilious Blue Cottage


The nearest fencing fences in a small yard - good for a kitchen garden, and the property goes back just behind the trees.


We’ve already got 3 or 4 things we’ll do immediately and then take our time and redo the rest to what we want it to eventually be. Structurally, it is a very sturdy house and barring some unforeseen devil’s work, closing should be the 15th of May if not sooner. Think we’re excited??????

Trixxee, seems like we paint every country home barn red (even the barn we lived in ), so this one also, will be painted the same with white trim.

The next couple of weeks are going to crawl by waiting to get our hands on it!

Talk about a surprise! I'm almost speechless! Where was I last night while you all were celebrating??? Jean, I am so very happy for both of you. Perfect size house for the two of you and the view is amazing.

Not surprised that you want a red house. It's the color of love.
