    We had an earthquake one day while some of the guys were working underneath the house. I wasn't here at the time (I had gone for sandwiches) but I had a shook-up crew when I got home. :)

    Ya we have all of 1600 sq ft and are rattling around in it. There's places in our house I don't really ever go. I suppose if we had kids it would fill up quick (and we don't want that!)

    That's a couple guys working. The whole lower level was torn out, down to the footers, and all repoured with steel reinforced rebar; including the walls. I have a nice tornado shelter.

    When people talk about recycling we ask them if they have ever recycled a house. Our home came on a 5 hour journey from it's original site (only and hour and 20 minute drive by car) 4 and half years ago. We are still slowly working away at completing the project as often happens when one is their own general contractor.

    We have lived on our acreage for 11 years. It is a long story as to how we ended up with a 1400 square foot cedar log home on 2.5 acres on city limits with great water, a mature shelterbelt and a short lane to pavement.

    There are very few days when we do not thank God for our incredible home.

    Nice. I have always said that I would rather have a home than house. Dave.

    My humble abode. Northern suburb of Detroit (Sterling Heights). The yard view is from the patio during the winter.

    I hate to say it AP but those pics don't even show two other small buildings. One is a large chicken coop that I use for some LONG term wood storage and another is next to the house. It was originally the old "wash house" from when washing machines were run with gas engines. Now it is my storage area for "this years" wood (and the dogs house), it is 24ft x 24 ft. Nice and close to the attached garage.

    I really have room to waist. :red:

    Lets not even talk about the mega yard. I hate mowing.

    My wife picked this place out 3 years ago when work moved me from VA to NJ.

    We bought in the summer and never gave any consideration to the hilly lot. We love the view and the peace and quiet. But the hill is a son of a gun to mow and the driveway is a son of a gun come winter. Several times - we simply can't get up it - even in 4WD. Parking at the bottom and walking up is no treat when it's icy. These will be things to consider when we move next.

    Looks like heaven to me-let me know when you're moving! Right now we live in a neighborhood on a 1/4 acre lot :( I told my wife that when we start looking for our next house I want to go in the winter. Specifically because if I can stand at the road and see the house with no leaves on the trees I don't want to buy it :lol: Peace and quiet are primarily what we're looking for, but being able to hunt deer without picking up my truck keys is a dream of mine ;)

    I had big plans when I bought my house. While I love the 7 acres I decided the best thing to do to the house would be to knock it down and build a new one. So I haven't done anything to it as it would be a waste of money. It doesn't look bad but it was badly built.

    The best part of the house. Opening the windows in summer with a east wind and letting the smell of roses through the place!

    Only good picture I could find of the house. Rose garden in its second year.

    From the back yard while I regraded the yard. It was rough had holes and ponds all over when it rained.

    Back yard after I was done. The holes in the yard were where I got wild with roundup.

    I am enjoying this thread very much.
    Every house is unique but every “my place†has one thing common - it is a home and a family nest for someone.

    Here are pictures taken around of my place:
    - Summer 2005 before the addition
    - Spring 2010: after addition, rock garden, back of the house, view of the Candlewood Lake from the deck
    - Fall 2010: honey mushrooms in the rock garden, firewood
    - Winter 2011

    You want to trade? I'd love to have that view of candlewood lake!

    What's that on the table? Chicken wings?

    Oops - I see, honey mushrooms. What do you do with them?
