The Lot

Photos from January, 2007 - just after we had closed on the lot.

Standing in the back of the lot. The big building in the end of the photo was constructed by the WPA in 1938.
Concrete blocks that might have been footings from the original porch. There was a house and a stable on the property originally.

Luciferous What?!!?

Luciferous Terra is what we've named our little piece of land on which we'll build our home.

Luciferous - Providing light or mental insight

Terra - Earth

Luciferous Terra - A place on earth providing light or mental insight

We like to think that our home and gardens will be such a place for us, and for all those that visit.
