14.28 acre, private horse property with a barn, 3 stalls, fields, trails, paddock with great clay footing, and a 5 bedroom post and beam home. A long driveway ensures privacy. Please see the walk through video before scheduling a showing. House is built in part on a large slab and is heated by passive solar, cord wood and a propane based furnace. Remote areas of the home can be heated or not, as you wish, by wall mounted propane fired heaters. Standard furnace duct work runs through most of the home. These owners heat primarily by wood- 6-8 cords per year, so the furnace has not seen too much usage. The roof is 5 years old on the main part of the home and the barn portions have metal roofing. This is large home with many bedrooms and other purposed rooms including a library, a music room, and a 3rd level finished attic space or walk in closet. There are many stairways in the home. The property also features an in-law apartment that has its own access to a 2nd kitchen area and to the outdoors. Plenty of on-site parking & parking in the barn for 2 cars. This is very private land and a very unique property. There are other flower garden areas on the property near the front entrance and a nice overhead roof covers a sitting porch that wraps around the front entrance of the home. Plenty of room to turn around in this driveway. There is a room dedicated just to animals as well, so if you have cats, they have their own way outside. The in law apartment is very private!

Although a home seller has already accepted your home offer, you'll want to employ a diligent home inspector to examine a residence before you finalize a purchase agreement. By doing so, you can identify any potential home problems that you might have missed during an initial house showing. Plus, a home inspection will allow you to find out if a home requires extensive repairs or maintenance and if you'll need to modify or rescind your original offer.

Hiring the right home inspector can make a world of difference for homebuyers. However, finding the ideal home inspector sometimes can be difficult, particularly for homebuyers who want to speed through the homebuying process.

So what does it take to employ the right home inspector? Here are three tips to help you do just that:

1. Review a Home Inspector's Qualifications

Learning about a home inspector's experience and skills is paramount. And if you devote the necessary time and resources to understand a home inspector's qualifications, you'll be able to find out if this individual is the right person to assess a residence.

Typically, you should try to find a home inspector who boasts construction and building maintenance expertise. Depending on where your home is located or your residence's condition, you also may need to find a home inspector who understands how to deal with asbestos, lead-based paint and other potentially hazardous conditions.

Be sure to conduct an in-depth evaluation of several home inspectors before you make your final decision. This will enable you to hire a top-notch home inspector who can help you identify and resolve any home issues before you conclude your home purchase.

2. Evaluate Sample Reports from a Home Inspector

Ask a home inspector to provide samples of past home inspection reports – you'll be glad you did! By getting copies of past home inspection assessments, you can better understand how an individual approaches a home inspection.

For example, does a home inspector provide clear information in his or her reports? And does the inspector offer notes that highlight home problems? Take a close look at a home inspector's past reports, and you can find out whether this individual takes a basic or comprehensive approach to his or her work.

3. Get Home Inspector Insights from Your Real Estate Agent

Your real estate agent may prove to be your best resource throughout the homebuying process. As such, your real estate agent can put you in touch with home inspectors who have your best interests in mind and will do everything possible to conduct a thorough inspection of a property.

In many instances, your real estate agent may be able to offer multiple home inspector recommendations. This professional also can provide details about what to expect during a home inspection and how to handle any home problems that you might encounter as part of a home assessment.

A home inspection may seem like a tall task, but with a great home inspector at your disposal, you can improve your chances of obtaining the ideal residence.


Build a home gym and you could keep your physical fitness regimen on track. Depending on the size of your yard, you could also extend your home gym to outdoor areas, allowing you to absorb natural sunlight and vitamin D while you work out at home. For example, you could jump rope or lift dead weights outdoors. If you have a finished basement, consider using that space to install your home gym. Instead of carpeted floors, consider going with tile. Treadmills and other heavy exercise equipment can grind tears into carpet over time. Following are types of equipment and accessories that could help you get an energetic workout right at home: Wall mirrors – There’s nothing like watching the results of your hard work pay off. Wall mirrors also help you to see where you need to make adjustments. You might think that you’re lifting manual weights for optimum results when, in fact, you’re curling your back or not getting a full arm extension when working with dead weights. Floor mats – Department stores sell floor mats for $20 or less. You can do yoga exercises, as well as warm up and cool down exercises on floor mats. Dead weights – Start with dumb bells and work your way up if you’ve never worked with weights before. Some dumb bells go up to 100 pounds. Sports stores and department stores sell weight bars and plates that you can also work out with. Leave enough room in your basement to lift and lower weights without bumping into doors, walls or other equipment. Treadmills – Price compare treadmills before you buy them. More expensive treadmills come with televisions and DVD players. Some treadmills may also have computer plugins. Because you’re already at home, consider foregoing these options to save on costs. Exercise bike – Working out on an exercise bike takes pressure off of your joints and limbs. For optimum cardiovascular and muscle building results, set your exercise bike to recline and increase the tension. Choose an exercise bike that comes with built in measurements like heart rate and calories burned and you can monitor your results in real time. Rowing machine – A rowing machine gives your arms, legs, lungs and heart a good workout. Similar to a home gym exercise bike, a rowing machine can help you stay fit without putting a lot of pressure on your joints. Balance balls – These balls come in different sizes and colors. They are great for stretching, coordination and balance. Boxing bag – Boxing isn’t just for the pros. You can use a boxing bag to kick or hand box, improving your coordination, balance, flexibility and strength. Add a home gym at your residence and you could save $10 or more a month in gym membership dues, not to mention the money that you’ll save on commuting costs. A home gym also puts exercise equipment like treadmills, weights, exercise balls and bikes within a moments reach. You could wave good-bye to the days when you didn’t exercise because you got off work after the gym closed or because you had to start work before the gym opened. As with any exercise regimen, consult with your physician before you start working out.
