    First House

    So my wife and I are buying our first house. We made our offer, it was accepted. The inspection has been done and the addendum for the fixes was done. Right now we are waiting on the VA appraisal to come back and then it will just be waiting for the closing date. We have to wait until the end of May to close so I will be one year on the job.

    Plenty of things to do to the house after we move in but it has 5 acres and it is laid out perfectly to shoot on. From the house to the back of the property is 300yds. I love it.

    Double garages under the house which will be nice. The detached workshop has no garage door though, despite it being plenty big enough.

    This summer I will be prepping to start a garden, working out if a wind generator is worth it(weather monitoring station to monitor for a year) and finding out how the heck to plow the stupid driveway!

    We are excited and I just figured I would share the news with you.

    That's great, congrats!

    This is the prefered method of snow removal around my parts...
    Give a man fire, and he'll be warm for a day!
    Light a man on fire, and he'll be warm for the rest of his life!

    Sniper,
    Yeah I was thinking about that but I am pretty sure we will get a tractor to do the yard then get a snowblower attachment shortly before winter.

    Congrats Guns, Yup, a man's got to have his implements of destruction if he has acreage. Tractor with a loader/w multiple attachments of course, log splitter, bulldozer, maybe a tuff truck to get around on the property? Hell boy the skie's the limit now, you got a place to stand your ground!
    Be safe.............the night is your friend.
