Happy Anniversary!

It's been one year (late June) since we bought this Old Stone House... short year in it's 153 year history.


Before above and After below... bushes were way overgrown in the front and hiding her beauty.

We have a few projects planned for this summer...  some roofing and gutter work and the most exciting... 12 new windows with full screens will be installed on the first floor.  WooHoo!  I can't tell you just how excited I am about that project!  We hope that later this fall or next spring we will be able to finish off the 2nd and 3rd floor windows.

I still have lots of painting to do... lots and lots of painting to do... LOL

We do love this house - even with all the work we've done and the work still on the Honey Do list... We love this house!

Cheryl, I love it, too, and everything you've done to treat the old lady special. Good work. I can't wait to see her!
