  • New Shop and House

    Just thought I would share this:

    Nice house, a garage for her, a two car garage for my shop, farm building, hay shed, and the back 40.

      Nice spread and good pics! I can see that concrete patio off the garage doors with a nice pavillion style roof. Be an awesum way to work in the summer! We moved 2 years ago and I just got my shop going. Working on my first project now. Hope your shop setup goes smoother than mine! Have fun, make chips and for pete's sake keep that lawn mower well cared for!

      Thank you to our families of soldiers, many of whom have given so much more then the rest of us for the Freedom we enjoy.

      It is true, there is nothing free about freedom, don't be so quick to give it away.

        The back 40 are for raising hay. The previous owner raised ponies. I think raising hay and selling it more of what we will do, or just lease the property out to some elese to raise hay or horses or emus or what ever

          Nice looking place Jerry. A good friend of mine just moved out of town to an acreage. Serious jealosy set in when I saw his new shop. He has a huge galvanized steel Quonset hut with a professional concrete pad.

          Forget growing hay yourself, let someone else do it. It's way to much work for the money it brings unless you go for a specialty product which is even more work. If you want to grow a cash crop look into something that produces a high return per acre. Depending on your climate something like Sea Buckthorn might do. It's easy to grow and undemanding. Sea Buckthorn is a nutraceutical. It is labor intensive to harvest as no one has been able to develop a mechanical harvester to pick the berries. This limits the competition and it can return up to $10,000 profit per acre. I would grow it here but I don't have enough water.

            Jerry,

            nice looking place! looks like not too many neighbors to complain about loud banging and grinding in the middle of the night.

              Congratulations!

              The attached garage AND detached workshop! Sounds like a winner! No doubt the rural authorities are much more tolerant of shop activities than urban NIMBY's

              BTW, a few inquiries with the neighbors may yield a tenant for the back 40. I have 7 acres of mixed hay a neighbor has harvested for the last 4 years running in exchange for a helping hand, loan of equipment, and overall good relations.

                    Andy,

                    This is in Eastern Ohio, off of I-70 near St Clairsville. The area is depressed because most of the coal is mined out and the industries have closed down. I work for me, and don't need to work near anything other than a place for the delivery guys to find me. The road in front of this place is paved.
