    As you can tell the woman hasn't moved averything out yet. My dad has been fixing leaks and just got back home today. Then he'll go back and start on walls and the flooring.

    Nope, not that close to the river. They stayed high and dry.

    Re: Home Sweet Home!!!! Pictures too!!

    That looks great Chelsey! Is the 12 acres mostly cleared? Or is it wooded? That's quite alot of trees for Iowa. I'm always amazed when I travel at the difference in soil, being from Iowa I'm a little "stuck up" I guess. Iowa has a dark, dark rich black loamy earth that just screams "plant something and it will grow". It's a very thick layer of topsoil, here in PA it's all clay, kind of light orange (not the deep orange of say Georgia), and hard as a rock. I don't know how anything grows here. (Wow, am I homesick?) :greengrin:

    Mostly wooded with a 3-4 acre Pond and just 2-3 acres cleared I think, but nothing is "clear" there are trees in the grassy area which is my personal favorite because you have open and shade at the same time :greengrin:

    Wow, 3-4 acre pond, that qualifies calling it a lake, I think. Looks great, congrats again.

    Re: Home Sweet Home!!!! Pictures too!!

    Haha wasn't sure on that one. "When is it called a lake?" I'll have to look that one up =P I am not looking forward to fencing and stuff BUT on the plus side my milk room will be about 12' x 17' with cement floors :wahoo: Course I'll do other things in there besides milk, like clipping and probably put a kidding stall in there too. Oh and it will be air conditioned and heated :stars:

    Wow! I love it, it makes me miss my home state of Wisconsin... well, only the beautiful lush green landscaping. I hated the bugs and humidity.

    I'm very happy for you ... and your goats!
