Congratulations, Beth! Your home is beautiful!

Now you can enjoy the process of putting everything in its place and making it truly your own. You so deserve it!

Very nice view there. I could do that. Looks great Beth.
Looks like few neighbors? Is your house all by itself?

You are going to need a driveway. So you don't track in dirt and mud from the outside. No need to dirty those beautiful floors.

We have one large room for kitchen, dining and living room and love it. It works well for family gatherings. I'm sure you will enjoy it. Happy new house!

Thank you for your kind comments. It still is not real that I live here. Tomorrow night is the monthly business meeting and when I walk home from that, then it may seem real.

I have neighbors. I am part of a new retirement, co-housing, community that has 28 building lots. Nine houses have been built so far. I will post a photo I just took from my back porch, showing the other back yards. The houses are situated roughly on a circle, so we can't see the others' house fronts.

Most roads are dirt roads here, as is the road I built on, so driveways would be ineffective for limiting dirt. The dust and dirt is one of the worst parts of living here. Think dust bowl conditions. Everyday.

Well, I am not able to upload the photo right now, will try tomorrow.

Congrats, Beth! It's good to be home, eh?

Beth I think I am safe in saying that every member of DC wish for you to have a long and happy life in your new home. It has been a long journey and I would like to thank you for taking us along it, with you. I have enjoyed the trip tremendously.
