Winter Preparations Have Begun
I know it sounds crazy to say Winter preparations have begun at our house, but there’s only a few short months to prepare. Every August, Andy gets a wood cutting permit from the Forest Service to cut down trees that are dead and on the ground. The permit lasts until the end of October, so there’s only three months when we can get all the firewood we’ll need to heat our home for the Winter. We do have a furnace in our old farmhouse, but we try not to rely on it too much because it’s so expensive. Andy cuts all the logs with the chainsaw, and I roll them down the mountain to the truck. It’s a lot of work, but we both love being up in the mountains working together.
In fact, over the weekend, we decided we’re going to sell our little farmhouse in the Spring so we can buy some land in the mountains and build a house. It’s what we’ve both wanted for a long time, so we’re going to do everything we can to make it happen. Lately we’ve been looking at a lot of property and cabins and found some land we both fell in love with. I’m not sure it will still be available next Spring, but we’re going to try. It has quite a bit of acreage, so in the future we’ll be able to get firewood from our own land. Right now we drive 1.5 hours each way and bring it back to Bountiful.
If you’re looking for a cute, charming 100 year old farmhouse in the greater Salt Lake area, I’ve got just the thing for you!
As always, thanks for stopping by!
Have a great day!
