Sellers Story - 8231 NE Paulanna, Bainbridge Island

Mo-Minski sellers story new homeowners
We moved to the island 35 yrs ago with two young children seeking a rural spot to raise kids and pursue our passions, yet close enough to commute to downtown for jobs, walk to the theater, library, and pool, with woods and fields and gardens.

At the same time, we began a journey with the Lutheran community services foster/adoption program, and thru that program, our family grew to 14 children. As our family expanded, so did our house. My husband, an architect and builder, created warm, welcoming spaces with each new addition to our family. Sometimes the children needed immediate intervention, and the State would call to see if we could find room for one more, but it required us to act quickly. We converted the hay barn to an apartment to move our college-age kids out of the main house to provide space for new arrivals. We created the bedroom over the garage to provide transitional housing for more of these same kids to gain independence and provide temporary housing for friends and family in need.

This wonderful farm allowed our family to explore their many and varied interests. We milked cows, rode horses, raised goats and sheep and chickens. We did blacksmithing and welding, and archery. We built rowboats and a pond to raise trout. We had campouts and campfires. We fenced pastures and built barns; we created a half-mile loop trail for walking, biking, and discovering animal tracks in the snow. We created an organic garden with fruit trees and berries. We have watched the stars at night, and the snowfall and lightning flash thru the skylights we laid beneath. Their energy and enthusiasm changed the face of our lives and farm. Now our children are mostly grown, some have farms of their own, some live in the city, and they have filled our lives with grandchildren. We decided to sell our farm to begin a new adventure with them all. We are excited to see which direction our family will take us next as well as who will now find their adventures on what has been for us a wonderful little place in the world.
