The house that built us
thats for sale so we can move our entire lives to SE Montana?
The one with the "horse stall" bathroom that uses functional barn items?
(Can you guess what I used and how it worked perfectly for a family of four over the years?)
The one with the wonderful wood bake oven
that has made Duck, buttermilk bread, and cheesecake over the years,
along with drying spices from the front garden?
You know, the one with the Finnish masonry heater that we built with our own hands
that has kept our family warm on many winter nights?
The one with traditional Vermont slate and its 18 piece pattern with rare red tile
that Mr. Foresterman picked out?
that carries over to that kitchen
with Feral woman's horse head pattern in the granite tile counter,
along with the birds-eye solid maple cabinets from our own woods ?
The one that has not only an eat-in kitchen ~?
but a formal dining room that overlooks the outdoor sanded riding arena, small Dressage regulation size?
And on one side of that formal dining room through the double oak pocket doors,
it will take you to the front living room
with its oak walls and maple flooring and pine ceiling?
And on the other side of that said formal dining room through another oak pocket door
takes you to the back hallway, with a 8 ft ceiling full basement down the stairs to the left, bathroom to the left,
and at the end ~ the first floor laundry room ~ and through the red door to the attached double car garage?
And that said hallway also takes you the the stair landing to the upstairs, with its maple walls and railings with maple syrup tap holes from our own woods,
that also has a peek a boo window to the back pasture and barn?
and that leads right to the ash, oak, pine, maple paneled (from our woods!) bedroom with the picture window that over looks the river...and of course the riding arena?
with double doorsand its stenciled floor ?
Then onto the foo-foo bath with foo-foo granite tub surround and floor ?
and nearby the second bedroom with its bright sunny dormer and built-ins?
Thats next to the little music room that has great sound, and another peek a boo window to the barn?
That leads to the end of the hall, and to the beginning of a huge home office, with more built-ins?
cant forget the outdoor garden with the little guys...and the barn... and the whole "kit n kooboodle"?
Yep, that one!
Welllllll, it looks like theres gonna be a new happy couple to love this place up and call it their home...
Yep, its under contract and we close in December God willing; and best part is, everyones tickled!!!
