The first time we had seen our new place without snow was on Mother’s Day weekend. We had just stopped by for a short visit while we were in the area. We had known that there would be some debris to clean up. We knew there would not be a nice, smooth mowed lawn. So really, for a place that had just had trees cut down and stumps dug out, it was a best case scenario.
However, it didn’t look as pretty without the snow. It’s not that we regretted our purchase. Maybe it was good that we had only seen it covered in snow before we decided to buy it, or it might not have been so appealing. I still think that buying this lot was the right thing to do.
It was raining on Friday evening when we arrived with our trailer, so we stayed inside for the evening. For the rest of the weekend, the weather was sunny and beautiful!
There was work to be done, but we also wanted to explore the surrounding area. The highest priority job to tackle was a big pile of rubble right in front of our trailer-parking spot.
Charlie was also anxious to move some little trees and get them started where he wanted them.
We inspected the bunkie and took some measurements.
Then we went to Home Depot to see what materials were available to finish it off. I’ll tell you more about the bunkie in a future post.
We also toured a model home in the area for ideas and visited the local ski hill which still had some snow!
On our last day, we hopped onto our bicycles and rode down the road and around the corner to a spot just a couple of kilometres away where two lakes meet at the road. It will be great having these so close by!
