Halloween is past and I must say, things have certainly been in flux lately..... the latest of which is creation of 'Ottertail South'. Peg and I have begun the process of buying Uncle Russ Mattson's house and land. Believe me, this was a momentous decision for us! Leaving the Ottertail homestead, place of my youth, my home of the last 14 years, and Peggy's and my home of the last four years. The upside of this is being only 3/4 mile from the homestead and the fact that Dawn and Tim will be coming to Wisconsin to live in the Carlson home!
Here is the view of Russ and Bee's a-frame looking from the northeast. That's the kitchen in the middle of the east wall.
Another view more from the east. Hey, a clothesline! At the left is the little stone building sitting atop the stairway to the root cellar.
A view from the west, northwest. Lots of shingles, but not much siding. No eave troughs, either...... I'll give you more views later.
I was a little slow to warm to this change, but as the days go by I find myself thinking of how it will be to live in this house, how it will feel to drive up that familiar driveway and be home....
Have a good and safe Thanksgiving.
