We have a little corner of ground on this earth that the Lord has given us to manage. The 1.6 acres is on Warren Road in the County of Columbia in the grand state of Oregon. I say “grand” in the sense of its natural beauty and temprate climate; don’t read too much else into that adjective... In any case, the driveway is on the south end, which is about 15 feet lower in elevation than the middle of the property where the house is located. The entrance is decorated with a bit of rock work to greet you. Had a thought of putting a pondless waterfall in there, but it is not likely to be added anytime soon.
At the top of the driveway is the garage apartment, boasting a bold shade of red, though not quite strong enough to remind you of a fire engine (before they started to paint them neon green, that is); a barn is likely to come to mind when you see the shade. One visitor actually asked if the building was an old one that we had fixed up. I am not sure if I should take that as compliment or not, but being as we were trying to make this new construction home not so modern looking, I guess I will take it....
