Our home

A photo of our home in Eastern Ontario. The house was built in 1903. We are the 3rd family to live here. We bought it in 1978 - moved in December 28. Our nearest neighbours, prize-winning Suffolk & Dorset sheep, live in a blue barn. Next to them are their owners, our nearest human neighbours. We live across the road from a dairy farm that has been in the same family for over 130 years.

We live in a quiet rural area surrounded by fields and only 2 miles from a small town. Our property includes an acre of land, with a large vegetable garden out back and a pool that we installed 17 years ago. My wife and I raised 4 children in our home and now we take care of our grandchild 3 or more days a week. Ten years ago my mother-in-law built a 2-bedroom "granny suite" attached to our home. The entrance to her home is visible on the right. We like it here. The house is way too large for our needs, but I can't see us ever moving away. We like to travel as much as we can, but we are also very attached to our home.
