The decision to buy a farm was relatively easy. After many months of searching we found our 100 acres of paradise. It ticked all the boxes, and we could hardly contain our excitement. It was then that we let reality creep into our dream….. How exactly do we build a house and manage a farm while still working and living in the city? We had never actually built a house, only renovated, and this was not the normal build. Our 100 acres of paradise had no power and no services. Could we do it? Our friend kept assuring us that “it would be wonderful” while secretly believing that we had gone crazy. Why would we take the risk? Did we need the stress?
It was at that point that we received some words of wisdom from our wonderful friend Peter. “Don’t wait until you’re old. Do it now, while you have time & energy on your side.”
So this is what our paradise looks like.
