our lud valley home
i live on a lifestyle property in a beautiful adobe
brick house with my husband michael, our cat
kitty, and our two dogs george & ronnie
my daughter chloe, her partner faz and their
2 cats maya & fig live opposite us in a wooden building with a grass roof
katherine, my 97 year old mother, has her own wooden house next to us
guests stay in a small self contained sleep-out
