The roof is starting to tear off from wind and of course that leads to a plethora of other problems.
As to security this place was wonderful. It is at the end of a very obscure road and is surrounded by good sized farms.
Another property that has merit has this very good barn. The roof is intact and in good condition. It is roomy and has good space for both hay storage and livestock.
Of course this is balanced by a highway through the yard.....sigh! In the following photo you can see the newly repaved highway, it has no center line and is considered a secondary road. There was little traffic as we looked at the land but what did come through traveled fast! This is most definitely a security and safety issue!
This farm had not been grazed this past summer and the pastures were grown up but they had good potential. This is a smaller property but the land is almost all useful.
These are just a few of the things we saw and looked at...it was a very worthwhile trip but as you can see we need to be careful as to the cost of repair and return and of course the safety of our future.
Now we are working at cost evaluation so we can get a better handle on how much we can safely spend on the land so that when we have it we are not cash strapped and have room to repair and take care of our new home.
The work of getting the best property really has started and it is going to be a wonderful challenge!
