Moving Day

On April 25th 2012, Lisa, Lucy and I moved into our new home in a rural area of Longmont. We picked this house because it is in a nice, quiet country area, but it's also close to stores and the highway. 

The house was built in 1920, and on the end of a dirt road. A stream is our eastern border. Our neighbors have many different types of animals: donkeys, horses, a mini cow, llamas, chickens and roosters, a mini horse, dogs and cats, can hear many different animal noises all day long.  Another advantage is that we can buy eggs right from the hen-house across the street.

The house a is technically a small house, just less than 1000 square feet, but since our previous home was  650 square feet it feels more than adequate. We also have a nice large barn and garage, made from railroad ties, in the back yard.

In the end of April 2012 we took up residence here. We were aided in moving by our friend and former neighbor, Mike, who is shown here on the day he helped us move our stuff in.

Here is a photo of our house from the road.
Below is the photo of the stream that runs along the eastern border of our property.
