The Springhouse

Front view of the old stone springhouse. There is a red chicken coop behind it.

From what we hear, the springhouse used to have a second floor. When the second floor fell in, the springhouse was repaired minus the second floor. We often think about adding the second floor back.

Inside the springhouse there are two rooms. The first room is full of water. There are a few very large bullfrogs living in here.

This is a picture of the second room. We have since built a wood floor in this back room that runs out the door and along the front over the stream. I will have to get some pictures posted....

Amie adding more goldfish to the springhouse. There are already 4 large goldfish that have been living in there for about 3 years, and 5 more we had just added a few days before, which we had taken out of our tropical goldfish tank. They were feeder fish we had put into the tank to help the biofilter to get started. They served their purpose and are now retiring in the springhouse. Amie is adding 6 more feeder goldfish we bought from Petsmart.
