    I have never seen a windmill so close to a dwelling. Much as I like windmills, I would think the metallic sounds would be adverse to a good nights rest.


    I remember my Uncle Don's farm in Michigan 60 years ago and the windmill was right outside the kitchen. It pumped water into a concrete trough where the milk cans were at so the milk would stay cold until picked up by a dairy. There was also a short hand pump inside on the counter by the kitchen sink. While I'm at it, I'll add they had a hand crank telephone and the phone number was Lacy 29 !! The Good Ol' Days.........

    Thanks Jim. Thanks for sharing your memories. I've seen so many windmills with the rotary having twisted off in the wind that it seems a tad dangerous. In fact this one was about 40 feet from the tower, as can be seen in one of the shots, all twisted and mangled. Luckily it did not land on the roof, it's a grande size windmill.

    Wow, nice job Sunrise! To paraphrase, "I choose the road less traveled".

    Very nice find indeed! Love the photo's. The one of the windmill tail hiding the door looks odd to me, those side walls look weirdly angular. You do have a keen ability for finding the great locations. Hope you never find em' all.
