The response we have received from people about this adventure has been mostly positive. Neighbors have stopped by to say they are happy we are restoring this beauty. Other comments have been “you are living the dream”. My favorite comment that really represents the spectrum of opinions was from a young couple. I showed them a picture of the house. The husband’s response was “that’s so cool!”; his wife’s was simply “why?”. This young couple’s response is likely representative of most who either thinks we are a bit crazy or that we are amazing adventurers. Either way is fine with us. We feel confident in God’s plan for us and take on this challenge in faith.
This back door is a visual of the old and the new. The old has gone..the new has come. A small step in the process bringing with it a glimmer of hope.
