Truthful Tuesday

To be honest I have been reflecting on the past 10 years here on the FARM!  The Roberts Rock Farm that is!

It was over ten yeas ago that we stumbled upon this place we now call home. A young couple of kids using the very slow internet to research homes that were in our price range, we had stars in our eyes. So we kinda forced our realator to take us to see this house, it was not one of her listings or in her area. And neither one of us had even heard of the town the house was in either, but we ventured forward.

When we first looked at the place we drove by during the day then came back at night to walk through~ the house was old and bare of furniture, but we saw potential.  Within days we made an offer and by the end of January 2000 we moved in!

Right away we understood what home ownership meant, and still having stars in our eyes, we gave ourselves a few years to fix it up! And man did this 225 year old cape need fixing up! Within a year a new roof, some new windows and a baby on the way! More windows, paint, wood, drywall, appliances, plumbing and so much more, before baby number 2 on the way!

Well 10 years later we are still fixing up this old home and making it ours! Our 3 acres offers us so much from our pond, apple trees, peach trees, stone walls and rich soil for a great garden, raspberries and blueberries! There is even mint and rhubarb scattered about the property. We love this place and are glad we can raise our boys here! Thanks for following me and my stories of The Roberts Rock Farm!
