We made an offer of 105 acres yesterday. We havent heard back yet but I couldnt sleep last night thinking about it all. Hubby said he would build me a barn on a 30 acre patch of woods and pasture for the goats. I couldnt believe it. This land is goat heaven with rocks, ceder trees and a small patch of pasture. There is a hilltop where we want to build our home and it overlooks a huge pond build in a rock quarey and the most breathtaking view I have ever seen, nothing but trees and hilltops as far as the eye can seee. The owner called the pond a lake cause it is 3 +acres big but I think of a lake as being really huge. I hope this all works out. The owner was trying to sell it in 3 large pieces but we wanted it all if we can get the price right. I will be a bundle of nerves till we get this worked out.

Yes in Tn. and just the next county over. It has been our dream to own 100 acres our entire marriage. We want land so we can run our dogs without fear of them getting run over by a car and so our son can go out and hunt in his own back yard and most of all a place where we can give our children some land to build their own home one day. It may not work out but we are closer to our dream than we have ever been.

Sounds so wonderful- I hope it works out for you- and I love the adventure of building somehting- it was the most fun I can remember although it was full of stress too. And heck you "pond" would be bigger than my whole place.

it is so much fun when you can design something and make it.

we just finished building the addition and remodeling our house, lots of work but still has its enjoyable parts as well.
