Build It and They Will Come

by Kay~Kacey on 5/18/2012

Ah, yes. Our new place in Columbia. Just the beginning phase of building.

road to home

Our driveway. Well, what will be our driveway. Looking from the road towards where our house will be.

start of construction of home

See? They’ve dug it out. It’s going to be a nice little one story house with a walk out basement with lots and LOTS of windows. This next photo is my beautiful meadow.


The builder saved me some big old rocks that I think I’m going to put beside my garden to sit on, or maybe under some trees in the orchard we’re going to put in. Apple trees, peach, pecan. Oh, yes!

more meadow

Here’s the meadow looking another direction. You can just see the telephone wires in the distance. ¬†Oh, and our meadows? They come complete with lots of ticks this year due to the mild winter… 8O

orchard area

This area used to be the pond/lagoon/icky stagnant water thingie. We’ve drained it and we’re filling it in. This is where we’re probably going to put the orchard. In a nice little secret opening on the land.

new house

This is the elm tree that SuperGuy cleared all the nasty Locust trees out from underneath it. And got stuck in the leg with a nasty locust thorn. And we’re currently having a “discussion” on whether or not his leg is infected…

We haven’t thought of a name for our new home yet. We’ve had our series of “Love Nests” and we’re thinking of naming this home something else. Considering it took us almost a month to name Murphy, I’m not sure a name will pop up for us any time soon.

Oh, and yes, we still have our home in St. Louis and go back and forth between them. World travelers, don’t you know. Well, state travelers anyway. Back and forth on Hwy 70. Back and forth.

That is a beautiful place to build a home! I love the idea of the orchard, too. We have pecan trees, black walnut and peaches here on the farm. The pecan and walnut trees were planted by nature and we added the peaches in memory of lost loved ones. They all have names…, dad, brother. That might be something you could keep in mind when planting your trees.

You thinking about doing a pond? I love my parents’ pond –
