Garden July 2017

The garden this year is doing so well, just enough rain and perfect temperatures.  I'll post more photos tomorrow

Okay, since I have a bonus half day off work due to the dreaded lake effect snow storm we're supposed to get, I figured it was time to update the blog.  I'm just going to put photos in some sequence that correspond with the last photos from October 2013.

Hubbys shed, where he keeps all his manly stuff, it's also hardwired, with cable

Wild grapes, wine!

Replacing the BIG windows

Drywalling the bathroom

We hate drywall

We really hate drywall,all 96 sheets of it

The mighty wood stove, soapstone

The almost finished bathroom

80 year old dresser and mirror and vessel sink

The outhouse in winter

View from back of the house

Manly fire

Possum from under burn barrel, they really do play dead

Almost finished kitchen, 1940's Wasserstrom work table, bought in Kentucky

S helping do spring cleanup, had to put blocks on the gas pedal for her

Dad, turkey hunting on property

Will take more pictures and post soon, now that it's updated.  Thanks for reading

Hey guys, back again.  We have lots of photos for you.  We changed out some windows to let more light in the back of the house and take advantage of the view.

And as you can see in the above photo we changed out the back door, and added a door in our bedroom for the deck we are going to put across the back next year.

Hubby has also done all the insulation.  We put R19 on the exterior walls and R12 on the interior walls, just for sound deadening, and so you don't have that hollow sound when you walk around.

He also hooked up the water softening system
That's it for now, we'll be back with more photos.  Thanks for looking.

Hi all, we're back.  Lots of updates and photos.  Hubby and D installed the plumbing.

They managed to get all the drainage pipes run in the basement, and these will be covered with a drop ceiling this winter.  They also managed to build and install the 32 foot beam for the main living area.

We also had our firewood delivered for the winter.

I will post more photos tomorrow, we have done a lot of work on the inside.  Till tomorrow.
