    Yesterday the final subjects were removed on a piece of property Jane and I put an offer on. :thumbsup:
    Subject to any lawyers problems it is effectively ours. I found this online a couple of weeks ago, It was a bank sale, the old house had been removed by the bank as it was unlivable, but the well and septic remain. We low-balled it and got it! :lol:
    It is about 15 minutes from our driveway and may well end up (probably) being the new home of Brandt's Bees. While the honey house is up here in Wolfville, I was always worried about the possibilty of a massive bee invasion during extracting, and the possible repercussions of that. We had been looking for parcel of land for a while, but nothing cheap was available. When this popped up we made our move.
    I will probably leave the existing honey house where is and just re-purpose it, and look to put something else on the property (maybe one of those future steel buildings or some such thing). It is on a newly paved road, and has the most fantastic willow tree right smack in the middle.

    Nice looking lot. Compared to this area, great price, too, and we are considered a low price real estate area.

    Happy for you.

    Congrats Perry. It was listed at 19,900 What which in any place is a good price. and you Low-balled your offer? what did you get it for? Any honey house you build should be built with the Agri Foods Canada guidelines in mind. in case you go to the next level and ship honey to PEI, Newfoundland, New Brunswick. and they come knocking at your door. Or for when they change the rules again and make ones qualify to sell honey at any other venue than direct to customer sales.

    Perry Buddy, I feel your excitement. I feel your joy. I join you in looking forward to the succesful expansion of Brandt's Bees enterprise. I'm sure you'll find a worthwhile alternative use for your newly built honey house. Keep expanding. The future looks great. Keep on moving up and up. :grin::grin::grin:

    The bank definitely wanted it off it's books. 25% off sale. What you saved will go a long way towards building a honey house. How many nucs and hives is the new honey house going to cost you? Congrats on the great buy Perry.
