Hi everyone!

We took another trip upstate yesterday and put in an offer on a house, which was accepted today!, on a sweet house built in 1940. The view in front is of the green mountain national park in Vermont. It is over 500' in elevation on a beautiful hill, and it has an apple tree! There's a perfect spot for my new greenhouse.

Its a bout 10 min from the VT border. The pictures don't do the views any justice. It's at over 500' elevation, with beautiful rolling hills, with amenities 5 min away, and some even closer. There's a chicken coop and a swing for my grandson! So we are moving to Hoosick Falls, NY. I've been talking about this for YEARS and finally! So in about 8 weeks, no more renting! The house is 4.5 hrs from where I live now. What a drive!

Here it is: https://www.zillow.com/homedetails/116-Hill-Rd-Hoosick-Falls-NY-12090/55730910_zpid/

The environment there is SO different, just what I've always wanted. I can't wait to pack and go!!!!!! I'm already planning my gardens.

I think I'm in shock LOL.

Oops, my bad, you did say that but when I looked at the map on Zillow I just assumed! None the less it is a beautiful home and property.

As I said early, Connie I love your new home and I am curious what are you already planning for the house? Are you making any changes? Are you planting a garden in the spring? Are you planning on getting any animals, like chickens?

Hi Jana,

We want to get chickens, but not right away. In fact the current owners have chickens there but I imagine they would take them. I am planning where the greenhouse is going and how the property will be landscaped. We'll have to paint, and right now just figuring it out as we go.

Sounds exciting Connie! You have a few months of bad weather to do inside work before hitting the ground outside. When does the sale close?

The sale is due to close the beginning of November. We are timing it with my husbands retirement. I don't expect to do any gardening unless we have mild weather, I might be able to transplant a few things. Other than that I thought I'd wait until spring. The house need painting, so that will keep us busy for the winter.

I am so excited for you and hope you do before/after photos to share with us. I hope you don't mind me living through your adventure, as I hope to be in the same situation the end of summer 2021. After living in the same city/state for most of my life, we (my husband & I) hope to relocate to the state of Washington after our daughter settles into a new job and property. It is a little scary and exciting, as the possibilities are huge (to match our wish list, woodworking workshop for husband, big kitchen, garden, and sewing room for me).

I love the enclosed porch too. I plan on sleeping in there once in a while. I'm trying to figure out paint colors, and how to safely fence our dogs in.
