Where We Live

I enjoyed seeing everyone's pictures in Kahn's 'Recent Pictures' thread, and there have been several threads about places to live, I thought I would see if we could get one going showing our homes. This is ours in Texas. Front, back and view from the deck.






It took three tries, but I got them to show. They were in a non-public directory.

Here is my home which I love because it is just right for me.

(Edited to add: I updated the photo and removed my complaint about Rustic23's photos, now that I can see them.)

Current house and rental place we're fixing up. We bought the rental when were first married in the 70s. Bought a bigger, fancier place 'cause we could and rented the old homestead out for the past 12 years.

Current plan is to move into the little place and fix this place up and sell one or the other. DH has his heart in the little place. We call it "the farm" because it has a little over 2 acres of land. While I love the space of this place, I have to agree the farm has that special something.

City House:


River House:


The river house is nicer but it is our source of emergency funds. If one has to go we will stay in the city.
