My home

Here's a picture of the new home. I will take more once I'm in.


what kind of tree is that?

Glad to see you are referring to it as a home and not a house. That makes the transition easier. You will do fine, I have faith in you!!!!

May you have nothing but good times in your new home.

I can't see it. There's a big fricken tree in the way!


NICE HOUSE! Congratulations!

How exciting for you!

I'm hoping to be a proud condo-owner by sometime next year. I can't even imagine the thrill of going from renter to owner.

That's a Bradford Pear Tree, in case you're interested. It doesn't bear any fruit, they grow quickly, but after 20 yrs, they start to go bad. The wood is soft and the branch structure is poor...or at least that's what it said on a website I read.

I'm thinking of planting an oak or maple tree to the left of the pear tree.

Congratulations. Home ownership rocks.

Red Oaks grow pretty quickly here in Texas; I'm not sure how they do down in your part of the country. Best of luck to you!
