    FINALLY, we've agreed on something. It's in a cookie cutter neighborhood and I never thought I'd live in one, but it's a cozy little pad with a nice sized backyard, 9 acres of fishing ponds, and a swimming pool... so my kids will always have something to do. It's also away from the city and I have several friends within a few miles.

    Never would I have imagined picking a house would be so difficult. Now the fun begins when I start forking over money for the down payment, inspector, etc.

    9 acres? That's gonna take you ages to cut the grass.

    You should invest in some goats to eat it for you

    The acre is a unit of land area used in the imperial and US customary systems. It is defined as the area of 1 chain by 1 furlong (66 by 660 feet), which is exactly equal to 1⁄640 of a square mile, 43,560 square feet, approximately 4,047 m2, or about 40% of a hectare.

    200 feet by 200 feet square is just under an acre

    This one is a little over 7 acres roughly and there's another 1.6 acre at the front of the neighborhood. Both are fully stocked with fish year round.
