OMG–2 Weeks Later. Look at Barn and House!

I wrote yesterday about how well construction is going on the Oklahoma property that will be Zena Suri Alpacas and promised

This began as a 1600 square house with no garage in June.

new pictures soon. Here they are. The quality of the photos is iffy since the camera was a hand-held cell phone. We are wondering if we are totally  insane or some of life’s lucky people.

I think we may have to nickname it “The Taj Mahal at Zena” or the “Winchester Mystery House II.” Maybe we should have a house naming contest? What would you name the house at Zena Suri Alpacas?

If they ever came, we could probably fit most of Zena's citizens in our barn

Zena is the name of the tiny town where our 78 acre property sits. Roughly 123 people live there in 82 housing units. Fewer than one-third of the families have children under age 18. The post office closed January 31, 1956. The median age is 42.

We hope to bring several jobs to Zena and/or Delaware County where it is located and are hopeful that taxes on our agricultural venture won’t be too high, so we can try a few additional ideas that will bring money into the area.

Right now, we are terrified by what we have done. Quick, send moral support!

    you are doing great things, LOL, our entire house could fit in your barn!

    The house we live in right now would fit our barn. 🙂
    We may be living in the upstairs of the barn for several years while we gather enough funds to finish the house. We are hoping some of our alpacas will be used in 4-H programs and as therapy animals eventually.
    You forgot to suggest a name.
    I lived in a one bedroom, one bath house once. Its name was Fred. 🙂

    Congratulations. The construction looks like it’s going really well. I bet it will look great when finished. 🙂

    The barn has two bedrooms and one bath, plus a kitchen/greatroom.

    Names: Hmm
    Catch the Wind
    K-T ranch

    It is hard to name a house, we spent 1 year before we named our place Rivervale. It is on a river, we have a lovely vale going down to it, and Rivervale is a suburb of Perth, it is the place Brian and I bought our first property together as a couple, and it set us on the road to investment and comfort. BUT, if I had my way it would have been Foggy Bottoms. (we get winter fog and I love the word bottoms in a place, no idea why)

      I’ve been thinking about this one. Actually, naming a house is quite personal and I it occurs to many Americans that a house should have a name. Once we have moved in, I suspect the name will come to us. Thank you.
