Holy crap, that's not a house its a biohazard!

I found the 15 acres with house and polebarn for 92K. It sold in 5 days.

My max budget is 100k. Too close to retirement to take on more debt than that.

So Monday night as I pulled in to my parking spot I noticed about a 6" geyser of water squirting up out of the grass in my side yard :( right next to the sanitary clean out :finger: so I went down stairs to the sump pump only to find the little thing working its ass off :(

So after a call to a grain guy and 120 bucks yesterday when I pulled in to my parking spot I found this in my side yard :woot:



soon it will be tree removal time :thumb:

Yesterday was a sad and exciting day all rapped into one as we went out back and cut down three beautiful Hickory trees, every time I see those stumps I will remember yesterday.:( These trees are on there way to a mill then over to a kiln for drying and then milled again before coming back home to become the floor for our new kitchen :woot:

We are one step closer to :thumb:

I have a ton of black walnut out there that might become my living room floor, we will see how the kitchen and dining rooms go first.

I want that deal too. I have a lot of good standing timber to trade out for time on a saw.

From where you are at look for some Amish in Northern Ohio :thumb: we have some in the thumb and they are great to trade with :woot:

My buddy got them to build a barn in exchange for a war out draft horse and two calfs.

After pulling around 900 feet of Romex on Saturday I took the kids out back to play in the woods on Sunday to spend some good quality time reclaiming trails :thumb:











We now have a clean trail all the way to the back :woot:

I'm working on a deal with my Amish neighbor who's building my pole barn. I also have a ton of black walnut, and a chainsaw mill. The plan is to mill the walnuts into beams and build a post and beam/timber frame cabin right in the middle of my 40 acres.
