Let me start by saying this is not our dream property. Kyle and I have been together since we were 16 and have always dreamed of ‘country living’ but what we had in mind was more in the realm of 80+ acres, not 2. So what’s the deal? Why did we move onto two acres only 5 minutes from Winnipeg? Kids. Yup, kids happened and we realized what compromise is. Sure, we could have moved an hour or more from the city but balance was our goal. Being close to medical care, child care options and maximizing the time the kids get to spend with grandparents and extended family were all very important factors in the decision.
So now that we are here we want to transform our property into our dream property through renovations, plantings / yard improvements and other hobbies which would not have been possible within city limits.
We’ve been living on our little homestead for just over a month, and had the property for almost two before moving in. Since we’ve just started this blog there is a lot of catch up to do!
