ya know, haymaker, when the hubby and i drive around to looky-loo at houses that we dream of someday owning, i have a habit of pointing out ones that looking amazingly like yours!!! Cozy, just enough room for the kiddos, nothing overly fancy......homey!!! :D

yup thats what I did built what I needed,its about 2100 sq feet,thats big enough for me.Around here you sure dont want to get to big this whole area is full of doctors and attorneys that pass a bond issue every damn year if they could,taxes are mighty high and get higher every year,Im really thinking about selling this place...............good luck

Yep, Hill Country. Makes me nostalgic. Great house, very typical except the porch is a nice touch. Nice trees. I could tell you dressed up for the pic but your workroom is cleaner than my house :mad:

Yup had to spruce up for my picture,do you miss the TX Hill country reader?

Nice place, haymaker! You really aren't thinking of leaving it, are you?

I really like the style of your house. And my husband was really impressed with your neat shop.

Thanks for posting the pictures. I didn't think you were that big/tall of a fellow from the earlier picture of you by your desk.

The coldest I've seen it here in south east texas was back in 94, we had a ice storm. Freezin rain and sleet. Pine trees were so heavy with it that it had em bent over with tops nearly touching the ground. Lot of the big one's snapped and broke taking power lines down with em. Was 16 degrees for 4 days strait with no electricity.....and we were calvin'. Made me really appreciate the fact that I'd handled my cows with cubes. Several calves had to be carried up to the barn with mama follerin' real close. We dont have a barn to put critters inside, but the hay barn had a lean to cover on one side that we put panels up around and hay inside so them babies could finally get dry instead of layin out there in the freezin snow.
That's when I learned, that you can cook a store bought pizza on a wood stove...hehe

I remember round about Thanksgiving one year in Austin, the temperature dropped 70 degrees and I'm not kidding. Being from California, I had NEVER seen the like. Summer stretches from March to November in Central Texas and longer in the South. But it can go from summer to a good solid winter day in a matter of 6 hours.

Holy Moses :shock:
