Our Home

In July 2002, we purchased a new home.  The decision to change houses came relatively quickly -- we had actively pursued a major addition to our previous home for most of a year.  However, in the end, we decided moving made more sense, and we found this home quickly and liked it.

We really liked the lot the home was on, and the layout and features of the house itself.  All the major elements were in good shape.  But you might say that we liked the "potential" of the yard and home better than the actual condition.  When we took over the house, much of the foliage in the yard was overgrown, and much of the interior decorating of the house, to put it politely, didn't match our tastes.  We have been working on many repairs and improvements, inside and out, ever since we took over the house, and have been documenting some of the changes we've made in the past few years, and most certainly will continue to make in the coming years.

Building MaterialsHowever, the following weekend was our "framing blitz". We prepared for it Thursday by picking up a ton of building materials at Menards. Here is a photo of many of the building supplies sitting in our garage Thursday night. Sorry for the poor quality -- the digital camera we had at this time took lousy flash photos.
Good Bye old door...
Turbo Tube SlideThe Tube Slide is the highlight of this playground. As a relatively expensive option, we were going to leave it off, hoping to add it "someday" but then decided that this, unlike several of the other parts of the playground, was something William could use NOW and we'd get more value out of it just by adding it from the start. It assembled together with something like a million bolts, nuts, and washers. Thank goodness for air ratchets... In this picture, we hadn't yet finished the bottom of the slide so it's just resting on boards.
Side YardA picture of our "front side" yard. Here there are shade and fruit trees, places to sit, raspberry bushes and flower gardens. Click the picture to see Cathy and Bailey playing in the background.
