Why though you liked the old place?

I could see it if you were moving to Alaska to get out of the summer heat and humidity and this down right cold winters.

Been about 44F adverage all winter up there and hardly any snow. Friend says every one is rideing their bikes in parkas, shorts  and aviator helmets.

We do like our current place but after much consideration, if we are going to put this much effort and cost into a new home and shop, we don't idiots moving in next to us.  There are a couple of places that join up to us that are either abandoned or the owner in possible financial trouble that either will not sell or will only sell at an outrageous price.  Just don't need nor want that kind of potential headache in the future.  Of the other joining neighbors, 2 of them are fantastic neighbors, 1 has moved to a new home far away and wants to sell but way too high, 1 neighbor has had a history of drug problems, a suicide, and other issues, the other neighbor has abandoned the place but has plans for their irresponsible 21 year old grandson to move in to a house that is so far gone deteriorated that it will have to be totally renovated.

It's 15 degrees here with light snow.  Last Thursday it was 68 degrees.  These wild temperature swings are tough on my bees.

Rereadding you post I see the plan is to have one building with home, honey house and farm shop all under one roof.

Not a good Idea as the honey can draw the taste of gasoline and oil not to mention the dust and dirt of the shop getting in the honey house section. 

Seprate them by more than a wall.

 

My wife would screem bloody murder every time fumes of gasoline, oil , welding and exhaust from the shop got in the home part of the building.

Thanks Al!  You know.....that is a VERY GOOD point.  I had not even considered that, at least not to large extent.  Most of my equipment is diesel but still fumes of any kind would be very serious issue when extracting and bottling honey.  It would be best to move all of that equipment and anything else that could possibly generate any fumes outside.
