Well, things are on the move.... Waiting for the lawyer to finish the contract for deed papers. Move in time is the end of April. Just got a car for commuting to work yesterday. Got a decent deal on a 2006 Pontiac Grand Prix. Everything is coming together nicely. I will be moving a few things over next weekend so I will take some pictures then.

Congratulations.  Having your own piece of the planet is a great feeling.  Plant a tree to celebrate.

Love the look of that Welsh farm house! Although I live in Canada, I love the thought of living in a thatched cottage on the moors. Must be from watching so many Sherlock Holmes shows!😁

This is the view from the top of the road, the cottage is a bit lower down in the trees.


If you have google earth look for "Halt Rd, Penderyn", or Google 50° 45' 10.68"N X 3° 32' 51.07" W. Beautiful scenery. The the train scenes from the movie "Young Winston" was filmed on top of the escarpment in the background. All the "natives" & Boers", were striking Welsh Coal Miners in blackface! Many of my Welsh (mis)adventures, were in this area.

I would like to have livestock of any sort but that won't be for quite some time. I travel too much with my job to make it feasible.

well, get a herd of cats, then. They'll keep the vermin at bay.

In the winter, you can grow snow!(for export). I'm sure you have a "snow-plough" somewhere on your farm.

Bear,
 
I'm very pleased it is working for you.  Linda drives near an hour both ways on work days, and it has worked well enough.
Maybe get a copy of an old book, "Cottage economy" by William Cobbett.  he was  an acetic old fudge, but also knew his stuff.
Tells you what to grow and how to keep the pig on a very small acreage.  Very clever really.
It was written I think in the 1820's but still applies.
Rambling style, and throws fits when he gets talking about government!..............but he Can tell you what to plant between your cabbages to get 2 crops a year! LOL!

Hoadie, I am definitely getting cats. My stepmom is going to live trap a few of the feral cats in her neighborhood to take to my place and I am getting a house cat too. Fortunately the place is coming with a Farmall M tractor with loader to help with the snow harvest LOL

Pukka, that sounds like an interesting book. I will have to look for it.

The local Hysterical society round here has a working replica of a typical Colonial era farm. You'd be amazed what you can grow easily on a small cultivated plot.
Its a technique called "4-square gardening" IIRC Its 4 raised beds with a path between them (no stooping to work the ground) a surrounding outside path then a white picket fence. Its actually the origin of the white picket fence!

I started moving this weekend. While I was out I snapped a pic with my phone. The place looks rough right now with the dry grass and all but it does spruce up a bit in the spring.
