An Anniversary

Closing Day, November 22, 2013.

 

One year ago today we closed on twelve acres of land in Hurdle Mills, our future home site, homestead, now the home of Spring Forth Farm. A lot has happened in the past year. These 12 photos show some of the changes and progress we’ve made in the last year.

  1. Wonderful, wonderful!!! Sometime I’ll have to show you the photos of our home in Shaftsbury, with a roof so similar to yours! (We opened with many windows to the south, and a loft to the north, thus cutting our heating needs hugely.). ……. The house in Shaftsbury hasn’t sold yet, but I’m ever hopeful. Nice people in it now, hoping to buy, but just renting for now. He has made a number of improvements, though, for free, during their year there, and that has been lovely.

    So glad to see your photos. THANKS!

    Love,

    Ellen
