My wife and I have made it our goal to move to the country ASAP. We finally sold the Tulsa home after 18 months of trying, and we're 2 months into a 6-month lease on the apartment we moved into. We had a plan in place to build a pole barn/garage on our 15 acres of oak woods to live in until we can get the log home built, but during the past few days, that plan is being turned on it's head. :? We saw a real estate listing for 20 acres - with a 25-yo manufactured home (glorified double-wide, but made better, and in good shape still) - that's for sale about a mile from our current acreage. We called the Realtor, and this morning visited the property for a look. A long, winding gravel drive led to the house, with guinea hens and chickens roaming through the trees, and I was instantly reminded of my rural roots. There's a nice pond, with mallards and domestic geese swimming (they go with the property, as do the other poultry, I think), the well produces great-tasting water, and there's electrified, fenced garden spots, several fruit trees, and several outbuildings. And there is the all-important tornado shelter. I do believe an offer will be made soon. We could be gardening by July, possibly. 8) Wish us luck, as buying into an instant farmstead these days for less than $100 Grand is almost too good to pass up. We still want the log home, and this could be a good property on which to build it.
