Land

Well, we finally closed today, so I can share the news.  We bought 53 acres at an auction on December 9th. The plan is to build a house on it this year. Currently, there is an old tobacco barn, otherwise, its pretty much a blank slate. It was logged in 2006, so there are very few mature trees, which was a big disadvantage for us. It will need a lot of work to make it “pretty”  to look at (green pastures, mature trees, etc.).  However, the advantages definitely tipped the balance. For starters, we have views of the blue ridge mountains, more space for various to-be-determined purposes, much less road noise, and we got this parcel for a really good price at auction. Seriously, the $/ac is low even for here. So, without further ado, I present the view from our future back deck:

    Bwahaha….ok, I laughed. Its going to get worse before it gets better too. We scheduled more of it to get cleared today. Also, the view would be pretty awesome in false color.
