would you be jealous?
Hubs and I went out to that property yesterday after work. The acreage was amazing. Beautiful views in every direction, and the wetlands were awesome. We walked out a ways and there were all kinds of birds. Pretty much the whole wetland area is included in the property. FUN. Think of all the wildlife that is probably around out there. Exciting!
The bad thing about the acreage was that it was full of junk. Everywhere.
Around all of the buildings, in the trees, on the lawn.
I am talking very serious amounts of crap. (Uncle Don, might be too soon for you to quit scrapping, we could have a fortune on our hands for you!)
But look at this shed – can you see the potential?
Oh look, random pieces of junk laying in front of it.
Look past that and the falling down siding, broken out windows, overgrown daylilies, etc etc.
OH EM GEE it would be so freaking cute as my gardening shed! I want to fix it up RIGHT NOW!
The house was in pretty rough shape kind of- I think it would be a total gut and remodel job. It is a split level which I have mixed feelings about, but I think the bones of it are probably good. Ok, I have no idea if they are or not. All that I can tell for certain is that the house smelled strongly of stinky (not to be mean or rude, but old people stinky) and has not been updated in a very very long time. But I could work with it.
So between completely renovating the house and the humongous tasks cleaning up and fixing up the yard and outbuildings, I feel like a crazy person for even considering this property.
But it’s 24 acres.
And it is in a nice location.
It has it’s own wetlands.
So what do you think? Should we make an offer and move in next week?
