Welcome

Welcome to our old farmhouse. Over the past year I have learned so much history of this house and the people who lived here. Ninety six years of love, loss, hopes and dreams. Preservation continues and there is always a repair to be done. We are trying to be purest in our preservation as much as we possibly can. I hope you follow along and each week I will try to give you a little history of the house as well as the first owners of the house. I've been lucky enough to find a journal from a Granddaughter who talks about the house as well as her Grandparents. So come follow along and learn about this old house as well as the occupants, old and new.

Getting There

 A few more shots from the chimney wall of the kitchen.  I have been able to clean up a bit this weekend after all the deconstruction. You cannot even imagine what a mess I had after taking the stucco off the brick, every cabinet as well as all the dishes had to be washed after my chiseling and  taking down that old paneling. So today was a fun day, I got to hang some of my copper and rearrange a couple cabinets.

A new range and hood are in the future as well as new counter tops. We are planning new cabinet doors, but not until the kitchen floor is sanded. We took the remaining layers off the floor and exposed the original floor, not as bad as I expected but still pretty bad.
