About Jodi or Jim Roberts
Jim and Jodi Roberts moved to 'Shady Springs' in 2001 from Dallas, TX. The land has been in the family since the mid 1800's. Jim's mother inherited her part in the mid 1950's and started carving out their little niche in the woods on weekends and holidays. Parents retired and built their home in 1970. Jim designed and built our log home 'Mi Mi's Tree House' on the land in 2001 to be near 90 year old mother. 2005 we redid parents home for guests and family. We live on the property and take care of everything.
Jodi or Jim Roberts purchased this house in 1856
