1969 in the red box.
the center of that square you can just spot the top of the trailer hidden
amongst the trees.
As the years ticked by, by,
and bye, our building plans languished, continually postponed and clouded
with challenges ever looming in the distance. We really
did not have the means to do what we wanted to do, but we were determined
and eventually we found a way.
The best spot to build is where the trailer is.
Within 15 minutes of seeing this property I declared
"We could live here for a couple years and Build a new house".
(Little did I know what had just happened, the hook was set, the pipe dream
Building on an open lot, or piece of ground is easy
compared to people living in and on the same spot you want to build on.
We faced lots of very difficult building decisions because of that, and they
cost us nearly 2 years of wrangling about "just how could we do it". Anyone in a similar
situation will appreciate our story of "How can we
Build AND Live here".
