We have 8 acres of beautiful wood and IMHO a beautiful spot that we're continuing to gradually improve every year.
It may be small but we really love it and it's got everything we need. I built this place myself based on plans I bought online in 2001 while working full-time and doing a masters degree.
One day, we'll build our dream cottage at the top of our land to take in the spectacular views. But for now, the 3 kids and the jobs are keeping us more than busy.
