…. and it went a little like this.
We originally had a difficult time finding the lot because the “driveway” was apparently severed from the road by a drainage ditch some years ago:
The “small cabin on the back of the lot which has probably fallen down” is actually a giant debris pile in the best building site at the front of the lot:
In addition to the debris pile we found a tipped over outhouse and an unusable shed:
Oh – and the gentle slope on the rest of the property turned out to be a little more like:
Which has a sweet little place to leave your rowboat even:
And so WE’RE PUTTING IN AN OFFER with the hopes we can get some of the cost of cleaning the debris up knocked off the asking price – because its obvious that the realtor and the seller have no idea of the state of things up there (seller hasn’t been in more than ten years and the realtor has never been).
Yes, it’s a funny little lot with some issues. But it’s a workable lot, in a fabulous location, for an asking price of affordable — and so it seems that new project time will be upon us soon.

YES YES YES!!!
