After years of living in stinkholes, I got my own place. Built in 1914, lots of charm but without hvac and a dishwasher. Time to go to work I guess
3.5 acres with a pond. Couldn't be happier

Congrats! I dreamed of having some land but living around the city it just wasn't feasible. I bought a 1/3 of an acre and it set me back $48000


Had I stayed put 60 miles North where I grew up, that same amount would have gotten me closer to 40 acres, lol.

And the honey do list shall grow !

This is what you need to do about that. Have her make a list of things she wants done and you make a list also. Take your list and pretend to go to the store to get stuff. Go to the bar instead. Come back telling her they did not have that and it's on order,ask her what she got done off her list.

3.5 acres with a pond? The pond got fish?

Who needs hvac or a dishwasher. Just spend all your time on that pond and you won't notice.

No HVAC? Look into a "All house fan" They are inexpensive to buy and run. I love mine. Also a wood burning fire place insert can heat a house real well for next to nothing> ( If they allow them where you live) . I use a canadian made Osburn insert. Its certified by the EPA for low pollution. I envy you if that is a large stocked pond. I only have a 500 gallon Koi pond, but is is still fun and relaxing.
Its great to own your own home, and stop throwing money away. The tax write off is wonderful too! Congrats!

Congratulations on your first house! I'm sure you have a lot of remodeling and repair projects in mind. Here is some money saving advice. If you're handy or not very handy, YouTube has some great "How to Videos" for almost any project you may take on. I can't begin to tell you how much money these videos have saved me by doing the work myself. They also have great "How to videos" on how to repair appliances and your cars!
