    Interested

    Hi,

    I am interested in learning more about the Amish people, your beliefs, and the possibility of visiting or even living in one of your communities.

    I am looking for a pure, simple, peaceful way of life. My phone number is 1-719-221-0226. I am presently in South Fork, Co.

    May God’s greatest blessings be present in every aspect of your lives.

    Thank you,

    Will Omega

        Internet

        I beg to differ, as Mark from Holmes Co. IS Amish and DOES use the internet!

        Kiki is right. There are Amish groups who would never think of using a computer, some who have smart-phones and a lot of variety in-between. I do not have a computer at home or a cell phone, but I work in an office most of the time and I do use the internet while I am at work. (I spend a fair chunk of my day seeing to business emails. My work-place is not Amish owned, if it was, there would be no internet) as well as using the computer at our local library, where you can often find Amish folks on-line for some reason or another. I often see Amish folks at the local library ordering things online or looking things up.

    Hey,

    I do not know if you are able to reply VIA email, however I would hope to hear from ya’ll one way or another, probably through a reply to this comment as I do not trust putting a phone # or email out for every one to see…

    Anyways, I suppose my reason for this is that I am quite intrigued as to the way of living that ya’ll have chosen. Though I don’t expect a responce I will most likly cheak back in roughly a month.

    I live between the Monte Vista and Manassa communties and have met some of these folks. I was lucky to find that one family was cousin to a family I knew in Holmes County!

    Very interesting reading! Thanks, Erik!

    Love Pliny to build s home in Western Washington 5 years

    I am interested in finding out if there are any builders that would be willing to build a custom home in about 5 years. Please feel free to mail me information on how to contact a builder. I am interested in what it entails. My husband and I have been very determined to make our dream home possible and we desire the quality craftsmanship that the Amish can provide. Thank you.

    Horses/buggies used by CO Amish?`

    Hi!

    I’m an Orthodox Christian and am so fascinated by the Amish lifestyle; I love doing things the old ways.

    My husband and I will be moving to southern Oregon and wondered if the Amish in CO use the horse and buggy to get around there. I wanted to learn to use a mule and buggy but it’s difficult in OR where the roads have no shoulders. How do the Amish deal with road conditions like this and is CO more difficult than the eastern states in this matter?
    Thanks and God continue to bless and keep you all!

      Kiki yes the Amish communities listed above all use the horse and buggy (they are considered Old Order). On roads with no shoulders, buggies simply ride on the road.

    Comment on Caring Craftsmen Wanted to Complete a House in Steamboat Springs, Colorado (March 29th, 2017 at 15:49)

    Caring Craftsmen Wanted to Complete a House in Steamboat Springs, Colorado

    I am assisting a senior finish a modular house that needs decks, balconies, and interior carpentry as well as the construction of a garage and utility room connecting the house to the garage. The property has an existing house that can be lived in while the work on the new house progresses. However, the existing house needs internal and external repair work before it can be used for temporary housing. The older gentleman I am helping has high quality standards for carpentry work and has been discouraged by the lack of skilled craftsmen in the marketplace today. If anyone is interested, please call me at 719.546.0761 or 719.240.4637 Cell.
