A house close to the land

The Eastman homestead at 2954 County Road 405, Old Engadine Road, Newberry, Mich.

It's the house where Kissy Missy grew up. This is a home about 7 miles outside of Newberry in Michigan's Upper Peninsula, and it's a really cool place. It features 20 acres, woods and fields, a two-bedroom house and outbuildings.
It has definite signs of the family history here. It was built largely by Kissy Missy's father, who lived close to the land, and it's the perfect place for someone who also wants to live close to the land. It's now up for sale. Take a look.

It's a snug house, and kept the family warm during cold Upper Peninsula winters.
