This is definitely not our dream home. Honey, I've found our dream home, there is only one problem......somebody already lives in it. On the way upcountry, we passed some of the long drive by discussing what features we were looking for in our dream home. We both know that we would like a veranda, one that wraps around all sides of the house, and large overhanging roof lines to deflect the sun, and the snow. We talked about size, we both like a smaller, simpler home. A few acres, in the country, and definitely on a hill. Nothing below the road for us. We wished for a combo shop/guest house out back. Part of it will also be used as a studio. I envisioned a beautiful garden encircling the yard, meandering gravel paths. Veggies growing in a split rail fenced space, so the deer can't get to them. Cats sunning themselves on the patio, and the dogs running up to the fence line. Chickens clucking contentedly in the pen. Rising on a gentle hill above the road, near enough to my family, and only 15 minutes from Armstrong. It looks like it has character, which is what I was looking for. We found it by accident while driving around photographing old barns.
Our circumstances do not permit us to move just yet, and of course someone else owns it.......right now. But a girl can dream, her muddy boot dreams, can't she? This is one home that I am definitely going to keep a eye on.
