Default We Bought a Home and Property - “Tres Hijas!”

My wife and I closed on a new home (Barndominium) on 25.5 acres on Lavaca County a couple of weeks ago. We moved to Hallettsville from Paris (via a short stay in Montgomery) and we have been renting a small, old home on 80 acres. While it was a great price, we knew that eventually we would need to buy another place of our own. We have been looking for the right place and the right timing, and five years later it finally all came together for us!



Although we closed on 12/13, we are making some renovations to the living area, kitchen, bath, etc. and won’t move in until it’s finished.

We are trying to find a suitable name for our little place. So far, I’ve been referring to it as “Tierra de las Tres Hijas”, or “Tres Hijas” for short, but I’m not sure we’re fully settled on that and are open to suggestions!





We will have Matt Stolle and All Axis Land Services out to clean up some underbrush and open things up a bit, soon. There may be a few beers consumed along the way!

I’ll update the thread as we progress with the home and the property improvements.

I’m currently looking for a good, used tractor with FEL and shredder to maintain the property after Matt does his thing. I’ve been researching threads here but I’m open to suggestions for what to look for in a tractor for a smallish property.

Can’t speak to the quality of it as I saw it driving down the road the other day, but there is a JD with a front end loader for sale south of Hallettsville on 77. May be worth taking a look.

I’ve tried to call on that one and they haven’t answered. I’ve got a couple I’m looking at in neighboring towns.

They are friends of ours. We tried to talk them into selling a part of it to us (certainly couldn’t afford the whole thing!), but they’re not wanting to sell.

Day 1!

They actually left a nice box blind, a ladder stand and an old tripod, along with two non- working feeders.
