Everything Update

December 16th, 2007, No Comments

It’s been an interesting week. For those of you that haven’t been following along: we lost power Tuesday and have been without ever since. Yesterday was the annual Christmas party at work. About an hour away, supposed to be there at 6. So at 2:30 I went outside to see if I could get the […]

1 Year Later

It was one year ago today that Terah and I signed the paperwork to buy grandpa’s farmstead. It’s been a busy year. We’ve had a fire that burned down three buildings, the birth of Jacob last October, moving while snow was falling, and of course living in a basement apartment for three months. Yes, probably […]

I’m dreaming of a white… Easter?

Last Monday, the high was 78. By Thursday, the high was 35 and we got 7 inches of snow. And some of it was still on the ground by Sunday, Easter. All this after several weeks of unusually warm temperatures. Terah and I spent all day Saturday cleaning, unpacking, and generally finishing moving in as […]

We are still waiting on a couple of inside details to finish up, and a bit more unpacking before posting interior photos. Click here for the full set.

Renovation: Week 24

Wow! What a week. (Click here for all of this week’s photos) On Sunday afternoon, we walked into the house and saw this: Yes, over the weekend, the cabinet makers had installed the cabinets earlier than expected! I never expected that I would get excited about kitchen cabinets, but I sure was. They look great. […]

Renovation: Weeks 19-22

November 28th, 2006, No Comments

It’s been a few weeks since my last house update. I’ve posted some new photos of the project. The new insulation has been sprayed. It’s a foam type of insulation that dries solid. It not only acts as an insulator, but also as a sealant, filling in little cracks that could let air in and […]

Renovation: Week 18

Well, it’s been awhile since I’ve posted a renovation update. Things have been going on, but not much that is all that impressive with photos. We’ve had electrical work going on. The new water and propane lines have been trenched in. New ductwork is in progress. New electrical and phone service will be trenched in […]

Goodbye, Dutch Avenue

This morning, we closed on the sale of the house we’ve been in since 2002. We’re excited about Grandpa’s farmhouse that we’re having renovated, and it will be great when we get to move in there in December or January. But it’s sad to leave the place that has been home for these last few […]

Renovation: Weeks 10-12

September 16th, 2006, 2 Comments

Well, it’s been awhile since I’ve posted photos of our renovation project. We’ve been very busy, and I’ll write about that sometime soon, too. But anyway, I’ve now posted photos of weeks 10 – 12 of the renovation. Some of the highlights include: new windows, a new roof, two new staircases, three old oil heaters […]

Renovation: Weeks 8-9

August 27th, 2006, 3 Comments

We’ve been very busy lately, so I’m a bit behind on renovation updates. I’ve posted the photos for weeks 8 and 9. The new kitchen is starting to take shape! We’re also going to get a nice heating/air system. My great uncle, who is doing that work for us, came up with a 3-zone system. […]
