Some of the finished product

We have been living in our house for about 3 weeks now and I am finally getting some pictures up. We are really enjoying the extra room. I love having my laundry room right off my kitchen and we love having a wood burning stove. Christian and I were both amazed how fast this new house felt like home. It already seems like we have lived here for a long time. I will post some more pics of the kids bedrooms soon!

The First part of the farm move....

The first thing that we moved to our new house were the chickens and turkeys. Before we could move them we had to set up new fencing, move shelters, feeders, and the watering system. We have found that the best way to catch tukeys and chickens is at night. They are much more mild when they are roosting and can't see us coming. So we put the kids to bed, get long sleeve shirts and head lamps on and get started. We end up getting a good laugh when one of us slips in the mud and we call it a farm date. We caught about 90 turkeys and 150+ chickens that night. Here are some pictures of us moving their shelters earlier that day. Hans and Dane were in charge of moving some old fence posts to the fire pile, Christian worked the tractor, and Shia and I put in the fence and supervised.

House in Progress...

Here are some pictures of our house about two weeks before it was done. Christian's family came out and helped us with our wood floors and they turned out beautiful. Christian and I stayed up until 4:00 am one morning laying the brick for our wood burning stove in our great room. We couldn't have done it without all of the help from family! I will post the Final Pics Soon!
