RE: Spring pictures

Melody, we're in a rural area that is mostly forest and that has not
seen large tract developers thanks, primarily, to the efforts of a
wealthy neighbor who tries to buy all the large pieces of acreage that
comes on the market and puts it in a perpetual trust to guarantee it
stays undeveloped. Also, we border a state forest so that restricts

Everything around here is custom built and we were lucky enough to find
a builder with a great love and respect for the area who lives close to
us and who was as concerned as we were about preserving as many trees as
possible.  This area is the prettiest part of the county IMO and we feel
privileged to have found this little spot.

Lynda: So I take it your developers were pretty kind to the surrounding
timber area in order to preserve as much of the woods around your
property as it appears is still intact. Did you have to look around to
find someone who would be that conservation-minded? Around here, the
developers don't seem to pay much attention to not raping the landscape
around developements...it's all cleared and then junk trees are planted
once the houses go in...ugh!
