Default Finally got us a piece of property!!

We have looked for property for a long time, but never found the one that was right for us. We wanted to find our last place, a place to retire on. We found it in Hamilton. We love the town. We love the fact that I35 and Austin traffic is a long way away. We have so many plans for the property. It has a ton of potential and loads of wildlife. We have started clearing some cedars and thinning the dead limbs of the oaks back. Our firewood stack is growing. We got a picnic table set up for now and just put up a feeder, feeder pen, and wildlife watering station. It's peaceful out here. TxNavyChief has helped us a bunch. Can't thank him enough.

It's just 10.4 acres, but it lays out pretty large and has a creek in the back.
