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.

Pond FountainHere's a picture of the pond, showing the fountain we added in April 2003. In the background is the back of our house, and also Bailey. The waterfowl actually seem to kind of enjoy the fountain. We changed the nozzle of the fountain in 2004 which gives it a better pattern, and helps keep it from clogging.
Upper and Lower RailsThis picture shows the upper and lower rails in place. Cathy is countersinking some nails which hold the lower rail in place (the nails were toenailed with a pneumatic finish nailer).
Inside View of DoorHere's a view from inside the shed of Cathy working on the priming. Here you can also get a good view of the roll-up door in its rolled position.
Living Room at ChristmasHere is a similar picture of the living room. You can see our wood floors here. The Christmas tree was a gift from our realtor for doing business with them. The almond-colored railing in the foreground, and in the picture above, has been replaced with an oak railing.
