Fort Lester

Fort Lester, is our current residence.  And one of the reasons I renamed my blog 'Home is where the heart is' because we'll be working on our little home so much this year!  Ft.Lester sits in the back of my parents property.  It's ours, we bought and paid for it.  And it's going to be our home until we save up money for the house we want!  It's nice being so close to my family, and getting to live on the ranch that I grew up on!  Fort Lester is actually a one room tool shed that has been completely remodeled by my EXTREMELY talented father.  We don't have a bathroom or kitchen, but it's fine because we are so close to the house it all works out. This year, the first year that my husband and I will be living together is going to be spent in our 'Fort' (a not-so-subtle tribute to our Army Days) and it will also be filled with fixing it up and making changes and improvements to it!  It's like practice for when we get our own house (which will most likely be a fixer-upper) I've been living in the Ft. already for about a year and have already done some changes, and I'll be posting frequently about our little home and will most times also post a link directing people back to this page if they're not quite sure what I'm referring to!  So please enjoy some pictures of our little place from the beginning to where it's at today!
