Let the Clean up begin

We have our work cut out for us as we take over our first load.    A lot of it is just general clean up. 
Immediate projects include:  putting the skirting around the trailer, gutters hung before winter, yard fenced for chickens.  Clean up as much stuff as possible before the rain and snow get to be to much. 

Positive sides of the property include the "Barn"... a decent shop for Russ.  The garden area is already fenced (although it needs some work too) and the greenhouse is up and ready to be cleaned.  A good winter project!  There are apple trees, cherry trees, plum trees, and filbert bushes.  Two English walnut trees, grapevines (like I know how to prune grape vines?) and herbs in... the asparagus area will need to be moved, but they are in.  I will just add ours once its moved.

I will try to take pictures as we go... and beings I am new to "blogging"...  you will have to endure my pathetic posts... 

  As you can see, we have taken on a tremendous project in making this 2.6 acre parcel home... :)  Lots to clean and lots to keep us occupied for years to come! 


  1. Yay Chelle! looks like you'll have a great place there! Is there much stuff that can go to recycling? Metal, etc? Might pay for some of the other stuff...

  2. Great start to your blog. I am going to enjoy watching the transformation over the coming years.

  3. Great adventures ahead! You'll make it your own, and you'll love it. Congratulations!

  4. WOW Guys! How exciting! Glad you can see past the clean up...sounds like a challenge, but will be so worth it in the long run. Keep on keepin Chelle! Chronic pain in just everyday life is challenge enough! Just be good to yourself and don't stress out! We miss you guys and hope the best for you! Love Liz, Chip & Shy!
