Thank you for showing us around! In my head I sometimes pictured it quite a bit bigger. I'm terrible with judging distances and even 1 acre sounds so big to me! It really makes me realize how much you can do with a little space. My yard is about the size of the veggie beds in front of Jasper, plus the beehive area. Narrow and long. I have always thought that we couldn't really do much besides the one bed we have back there, but seeing your farm has given me a few ideas. Plus, I've been following your blog since almost the beginning and think it's great to be able to picture these places now when you talk about them. And Happy Birthday! I turn 30 in 2 weeks and couldn't be more excited. It sounded like you had a great time in your post, hope mine is filled with just as much fun, friends and relaxation as yours was!

Your home is much bigger than I imagined, thought it was cottage size. What a great farm you have. Loved the way Gibson obeyed-sometimes. Just like the dogs are here, especially if there is company

It's not that big. It is three medium sized rooms downstairs, two bedrooms and a scary large closet upstairs. The thing just looks big on camera, but that 1100 square feet includes the basement!

But thank you for that comment, a lot can be done on small spaces..,

Gibson is generally good, but has his moments.

I know you are great at research, but I just wanted to check in... are you certain you want wood stacked against the house? Often this encourages negative (carpenter ants, termites, etc.) insect activity. I chose to put mine across the driveway in a shed and haul it into the house a few days-worth at a time. (Before I could afford to build the shed, I had it covered with tin roofing.)

I figured against the house was better than in the house... I could stack it just plain out there with a tarp, I guess.

I love the videos you post of the farm like this, thank you for including us in everything that is Cold Antler! Your blog is the balm that keeps my Barnheart satisfied until we're there too. Thanks Jenna!

Thanks for the tour! I thought of you today when my family watched the sheep dog trials at the Scottish Highland Games in Mr. Vernon, Washington.

Jenna the farm looks great ! I've been following you're blog since December, I've read back two years so far to see how far you've come. What an amazing year it's been!

Thank you for that. Now I can have a better picture of what goes on where when you write about it. I imagined you with a bigger plot, but it seems plenty for what you are keeping on it.

Thank you.
We're in the process (interminable, but there is light at the end of the tunnel!) of buying our homestead. Sometimes I panic that it's 4.6 acres won't be enough. It's good, really good to see that the ALL that you do and I admire is on a (roughly) similar plot...

My love to the farm!

I just love the way your house looks..I miss American homes..living in The Netherlands for 4 years I have seiously had my fill of brick houses.

Your farm is very beautiful and such a wonderful peaceful spot to call home : )

That backyard area is small, but you are only seeing the 1/2 acre area around the house in that video. IF you were to walk to the top of that horse pasture you could look back 2/12 acres that the video doesn't show and the rest of the property is woods and trails behind the barn. This is just the area I am using so far!

Thank you for the tour again! I just love that corner of the world out there the beauty and my family connection. Yesterday Mom and I went for donuts and the tour and Mom is pretty sure the next farm on the right was her cousin's place. Mom will confirm with her sister but she is pretty sure. Love your blog keep on writing

Thanks for the tour. I always wondered how everything was laid out there. Nice to have the sheep so close. You have twice as much as I have here and that's alot for me with a tiny bit of help from a "part time" husband. He drives a truck so it's up to me to do most of this. But I do love it.

And the house looks really big to me but only has 5 rooms? It's really a pretty farmhouse. You did good when you found that place.

Thanks for the tour. I love your place. Its so nice to see green. We're having a severe drought and the grass around my house is crinkly and brown but our pastures are still green. Which is amazing. Your artesian well is a blessing. Belated happy birthday.

It's nice to see how everything's laid out, but also how great everything looks. Looks like a lot of work, but with so many rewards!
