This blog is nothing new.
It's the story of two city kids (midlife kids, that is) who decided to buy a house in the country. Who've taken on a dozen acres of woods and garden and orchard and creekside with nary a day of country living in their adult lives. Who are learning how to fell trees and plant them. Raise chickens and raze poison oak. Who are entering a new community that's very different from the one they came from. And hoping to do it all without losing a limb or sanity.
The home we bought is called Bear Creek Estate; it's situated in the Sierra Nevada foothills, and this is what it looked like on the day we closed escrow:
For us, this blog is a place to document our experiences via photos and words. We hope that, for you, it will be a source of amusement as we bumble our way through lessons both fun and difficult.
Welcome to Bear Creek Estate.
