So, currently we are in Southern Wisconsin. We moved here almost 2 years ago. We rented a house on the Wisconsin River our first year here.
Last summer we bought an Amish home right in the heart of a big and thriving Amish community. We have 2 acres, and love the country! We moved into a home that needed electric, a new well, bedrooms, another bathroom, refrigerator, etc. It is a work in progress, but now we have 7 bedrooms, an office, and another full bathroom. Our projects will be many but we are moving along. We bought the house last June, and moved in October 2015. We have put in all smoke detectors (22 of them), added trim and blinds to the windows, painted the bathroom, changed hardware in bathroom, put in a refrigerator, a ceiling fan, a few closet shelves, and our laundry room plumbing. Our projects this summer (hopefully) : finish the shelving in the closets, remodel the kitchen to add counters, cabinets, sink, dish washer, and install our stove/oven. Put in a new toilet, new flooring and trim in the main bathroom, and paint/install 22 doors. If we do the doors, we will need to put in our flooring before hand.
The shed/barn is very large. We are so thankful for the extra space. One side of the shed has 3 horse stalls, a chicken room (with hen boxes) and a fenced in coop. There is a hayloft and a large open shed area. I am still amazed at all the space. We would like to eventually get chickens for eggs and meat.
I will update more soon. Time to mow the lawn and do some weeding.
