You have done a really nice job on making your home and property look like Home Sweet Home sissy! I can see why those guys wanted to take off w/ all your neat stuff you have that you made and bought out there. They would have gotten away w/ a gold mine!

When we bought this house, neither of us could recall what the house looked like. But we could tell you in detail what the land looked like. Houses can be tweaked, lousy land can't. Love our slopes, just had to tweak to make it easier to work on , i.e. mowing etc. All the hard to mow slopes are now gardens, ponds, streams.

It so far has taken up 8 years of my life and sometimes wonder what the next owners in the future will do .If they will keep it up or let it go .I put 10 years into my house in NJ and the gardens were great and the new owners have left it go and let weeds just over grow every thing and it was sad to see .

sad to say all that work and values of houses going down every day .I am just barely going to break even when I sell .Makes you think .I think the house is jinxed .I ordered kitchen counter tops twice .First time they some how reversed the template and second time counter top was broken when it got here .
