Summer in the woods, you can feel very cozy and isolated. In winter you realize how incredibly close you are building to your neighbour and the main road. I have 23 acres and am probably 200 meters from my neighbour. WFT?!? Sorry Jeff, it was just the lay of the land.
I drew out the deck and the Ginger Shack in the snow and took stock of the winter view/exposure from the windows. I liked what I saw.
