Our Home

Our Gering homeDoug and Barb Beezley first moved to Scottsbluff, Nebraska in 1971. For 5 years, we lived in a mobile home before moving it to Minnesota for a one year "adventure".

In 1977, we moved back to Nebraska, buying our first "land home" in Gering. At the time it was a plain white box of a house on a large empty lot. It had been built in 1975 and we were the second owners.

For years we added improvements to the house and yard. In 1994, we started on a major "reconstruction" job. After adding a 3 bedroom, 2 bath addition, we re-constructed the original house, moving the stairs, expanding the kitchen and living room, adding a dining room, music room, and an upstairs laundry and pantry. The project was mostly "do-it-ourselves" and took about a year to complete.

We have relished our indoor and outdoor environment. We have planted trees, shrubs and flowers. In the dry and windy western Nebraska climate and alkaline soil, it has been a struggle. Here we have photos of the "fruits" of our labor in various times and seasons. You are welcome to browse and comment.
