Default Moving To The Country!

I grew up in the country in East Texas
Finally after 23 years of residential living we are headed to the country
Found a nice place on 10 acres with a stocked pond (catfish & crappie)
Nice 30x50 metal shop on slab with electrical
House has a metal roof
Active well for irrigating garden
Deer walking around in back part near the pond
Sits on a non pass thru county road. Just pass my drive the road ends with a circle turn around
Nearby neighbor has 100 acres & I just think we might become good friends

Nice! Congrats. Our youngest graduates in 4 years and we will be heading up to Laneville in Rusk County. We are about 75 miles from Houston now and it's too close for me.

We're about 8 miles through the woods from Laneville, and I'm still too close to Houston.

I moved from Houston to Votaw in 2005. My ancestors have lived here on this property since 1859. I wish I could have left the city sooner.

Congrats on the land purchase. Sounds a lot like our little place....minus the peaches. We have finally made the move out here permanently and living the dream. Be forewarned though....10 acres is a lot of work to maintain friend 😩
