Thanks for the replies Nicole and David!
Sorry for the delay. Here is a link to the plans we are currently interested in altering
I was hoping to go with the Glacier Ridge plans which were the same, but with a walk out basement. Unfortunately the lady at the bank told me I'm too Poor.
As for bears, we will be moving in on a 20 year bear smorgasbord. Those trees are 20+ years old and have not ever had regular human occupation. You should have seen the piles under the apple trees once they were ready. Every 5 feet. Think there is a family. We intend to get a pair of LGDs. We have already visited Olympicdogs.net in person and seen his stock. We were impressed.
we have 15 or so apple trees, 3 or so plumb trees (various types), 5 or more cherry trees (in the worst shape... 2 will need to be taken out for sure), 3 asian pear trees, 2 pear trees, 2 peach trees, a tree we haven't identified yet because the bear stripped it before it ripened. I think that's it. Kinda awesome, but we need to learn to care for an orchard.
There were tons of Deer before hunting season started. I was regularly seeing 5-12 deer each evening that I stayed around in the summer for the sun to set.
