We sold our subdivision home in the city in June 2011 and purchased our small farm in August, 2011.
But even before we closed the deal, my husband Bill was on the look out, collecting things for our little farm.
One day, while driving by our not-yet-house just to look at it again, (we did that often) Bill happened upon a yard sale.
What's really strange about that is, he usually doesn't stop at yard sales. Me? I will wear the brakes out, screeching to a halt for a yard sale!
That day he found and purchased a load of old barn wood. Enough to fill the bed of our pickup truck.
We didn't know what we would use it for at the new house, but he said he just could not pass up all that weathered wood for only $25.00 .
After purchasing our little farm, Bill decided to use the barn wood on one wall in our lower level family room (The Man Cave).
