It was about 2 months before we found the farm for sale. Eric told me he gave up on his dream of having a building, which broke my soul. At the time we were living in an upscale subdivision with an acre and a half of sloped land, and no room for a building. He loves trucks (Dodge trucks in particular), and has wanted a place to work on them for over a decade. When we found this place we obsessed over the old barn, and knew that as soon as the finances allowed, it was getting a huge makeover.
