Lots of good suggestions, especially the handy hubby! Mine just spent spring break re-wiring the tractor and building another stud lot instead of beach fun like we normally do.
I have a different situation on how I afforded my farm. I own the farm my grandpa started in the 50s. I was 15 when my mom had to give up training (unrelated injuries) I sat down with my gpa and mom and asked what the plans were for the future of the farm. Their answer was sell. Didn't sit well with me and I BEGGED them to give me the chance to buy it. I gave my gpa every penny I made at my teenage jobs and cont'd making pmts thru college. Shortly after I got married my gpa had to have major heary surgery (16 hrs) and subesequent back surgery 6 months later. At that point I convinced my hubby that we needed to move to the farm asap to take care of him. Got an appraisal, financed the difference and we've been here since. I made my last pmt on my 28th birthday. I now know that gpa's farm will be a part of the family legacy for a very long time :)
