Finally we moved in this weekend. Things are not done done, but done enough for us to move in. There are
several things I am so thankful for …….a regular hot shower , a washer and dryer, the fact that I don’t
have to go outside to the outhouse in the chilly morning, that fact that I don’t have to worry about hitting my
head on the ceiling when I sit up in bed, and that I have a real kitchen to cook in, just to name a few things off
the top of my head. Now these pictures are not from this weekend, I want to wait a few more weeks to get the” close to done” pics.
One thing that was driving me nuts this summer was the multiple piles of dirt we had around the property and all of the rocks
in the yard, I guess basically that it looked like a construction site and didn’t look “pretty”. Well the dirt guys
finally showed up and made things much better.
Unfortunately there were several trees that had to come down to make way for the garage pad and the driveway
back to the garage……..those trees had been the subject of multiple heated discussions between Corey and I……and I
spent hours trying to figure out a way to keep them, they came down and I will be warming up my shovel in the
Spring to replant new ones.
Three days later……..TADA……now the landscapers just need to come and put in some sod and mulch.
Corey supervising the trim staining…….
The laundry room shaping up…….this is of course before the washer and dryer were in.
The dog shower is going to come in handy if I don’t get my landscaping done soon.
The eating bar in the kitchen is reclaimed wood and has had many coats of varnish on it.
This is the powder room sink, the same reclaimed wood and a copper miners pan for the sink.
A preview of the rock going on the master shower floor……..this it going to feel great on the feet.
We are getting some nice Fall colors this year, sometimes it just gets too cold too quick and everything turns
brown and falls off the trees.
The barn and the house are still waiting on siding.
The garage will go here, hopefully before the snow sticks.
All of the doors that need to be stained .
Brian working on staining them.
The ponies still like their new setup. I promise an update in a few weeks that should have the interior mostly
done, and maybe some siding too.
