but not to the yellow house on three acres with the cool coops. It needed $50,000 in repairs and appraised at $30,000 less than the selling price. We rescinded our offer when the bank wouldn't budge but $10,000 on the price. So we bought a bank foreclosure on five acres of neglected property. It has a 3,000 sq ft barn style home, completely remodeled inside. There is a one bedroom guest house above the garage in the back. This will be the chicken's view of the house from their coop and yard. There was on old barn on the property but I had it torn down. We saved the 8 inch thick cement pad and are having an 18x32 barn constructed. 180 sq ft of it will house my chickens. I saved the workbench for my brooders and incubators which will be used in the shed/storage side of the barn. It has electric and water! We have access to a miner's inch of water from the irrigation canal running across our property. Next week a 40 x 60 ft pond, 8 feet deep will be dug and the pastures trenched and piped for irrigation. We also have a well for drinking water. I am so excited to get up there and become a real farmer! I might have trouble posting updates because there is NO internet out there! When I ask neighbors, they say they drive into town, 2 miles to Starbucks for the WiFi. We have slow access through our Verizon air card so this could be very challenging! The barn builder set up a temporary 8x8 shed for me to house the chickens and I put in an electric poultry netting run, just until the shed/bar/coop structure is done. Wish me luck!
