See this cabin?
THAT IS MY NEW HOUSE!
(That little person in the grass is Ada.)
At the driveway there’s a neighbor’s field. The field is full of goats–maybe 15 of them. They came running, bleating hello.
Pregnant goats, nurslings, and man goats with long beards. Pure awesome.
Ada said, “That goat isn’t right Mama. He’s got rectangle eyes!”
All goats have eyes like that kiddo.
Almost every house around has chickens and roosters. The neighbors over one more field, also bordering our land, have horses and the neighbors behind them have a herd of cattle.
It’s completely and totally perfect.
The view of my yard on a cloudy day:
There’s more land across the road and behind the house, plus a bit through the woods down to a creek. It’s 4.33 acres in total.
I love that there is no road. It’s all gravel, just a gravel road with gravel driveways off of it. I don’t have to worry about kids and pets running into the street.
My Little House on the Prairie dream house is on a gravel road out in the sticks.
The inside of the cabin is a little rustic, but in a fun way.
WiFi reaches out here! The cabin is a mile from the river, down winding roads out in the country.
This is the view on the drive out:
(It’s been so cloudy and cool out lately, yuck.)
We’re renting this place from another homeschooling family and selling our home in town as quickly as we can.
Moving is proving to be very stressful. We have to put up fencing, build chicken pens, and pack/move all of our household things.
This isn’t exactly easy while pregnant. I get tired out so easily!
I’m completely overwhelmed by predator proofing. The neighbor with the horses warned us that her dogs eat chickens and chase cats. The dogs roam all over.
We also have coyotes, on top of all the regular predators like raccoons, foxes, owls, and hawks.
Here’s a picture the owners posted of the inside:
The floors are made of willow wood.
I can’t wait to get moved out there!
Baby H will be born in this cabin out in the woods. (Hopefully!)
Here’s to being 26 weeks pregnant, in my new bathroom!
