    It seems the thread about posting a pic of yourself is very popular.
    So why not a thread for posting a pic of where you live to.

    So here goes, I hope this is as fun for everyone as the person pic thread is.

    This pic is taken about halfway between the road and the house.

    Since its up on a hill, the driveway goes up at an angle.
    Way over to the right, is where the driveway turns off the road, and then angles up towards the house.

    I need to snap another pic from the road really, showing the garage which is just a little out of the frme of this pic, also to the right.
    The driveways goes past the front of the garage on a flat area, and then stops behind the house.
    There is also a 2 car garage attached to the backside of the house.
    Down closer to the road is an old barn that was here when we bought the place, its huge, but in poor condition. I estimate the barn to be about 60 or more years old.
    The house was built in 1998, I bought it in 2000.
    Then built my garage for my business in 2001, and moved from the old shop in town, and work from the garage at home now.
    As the real estate market is weak here, I just rent the garage in town out to a business man.
    I hope the market will recover, and to then sell the garage in town.

    As in the other thread, I don't have a recent Winter scene so this one from a couple years ago will have to do.

    Oh no, I'm not biting on this one. The interior of my house looks great. I just redid my roof as well, but my siding is an eyesore. Not posting any pics of mi casa for at least a year when I get the cash and time to do my siding. You guys have beautiful homes. Really nice places. I'm thinking soon enough my place will be up to snuff. Nothing like McBride's place though. Holy crap that's like a friggin magazine.

    Gives you guys more of an idea when I post my lay out.

    Oh, and by the way, most of the trees behind the house, and more to the left, are mine. One heavily wooded acre :)

    'Course, it's under 2 feet of snow right now :)

    Adios, love the log cabin. Looks like a great lot. Kathleen, I'll trade my house in RI for yours in NC, you can have the taxes and everything! :) Your house looks beautiful. Not bad for a kid from Middletown.

    Thanks! Laying on my hammock on my sweet southern front porch is just about heaven for half of the year. Starting in late April, me and the boy race for it when we get home on a weekday.

    Looks like his draft is a little lazy. I think he should add another foot or 2,..and maybe some more chicken wire to hold it. :lol:
    Love that pic quads.
    I have to find a pic of my dollar menu McMansion.
