    2020

    Happy New Year!!!  Thank you for staying with us through 2019 as we have embarked on this farmhouse restoration.  It has been an adventure and we are so excited about the transformation you will see in 2020. So much of the work we have done this past year has been behind the scenes work, such as foundation, electrical, plumbing, etc.  In 2020 the progress will be much more visible in terms of the finishing touches.  We will be starting off the year with the completion of shiplap and trim. That will be followed up with the installation of tubs, light fixtures, etc…which are all purchased, staged, and ready to go.…

    Clinging to our vision

    Quality restoration takes time.  We did a little personalizing/decorating to stay focused and optimistic as we cling to our vision for this project.  I love this HELLO on our front door.  Thank you Laura Marcello from Slaybel clings (sold via Etsy).  Her clings are advertised for special occasion glasses, but we think they bring a special touch to so much more.  Such as this fun “Hello”.  Everyone who comes to our door will be greeted by the Hello of this bold and creative font. In addition to the window I asked her to create a cling for my trash bin. It will be nice when friends come over and don’t…
