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.

Inside the ShedOne last view of the shed, this time looking to the right of the tractor. This shed freed up some much-needed storage space in the garage, and we are able to easily get to all the tools and equipment now.
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.
Checking out the progressCathy and Andrew check out the progress, as William plays in the background with his toy tools.
Adding the lower deckAt this point, the three major frames were all installed, and Tim works on adding the decking for the lower deck. The special green brackets are in use here -- on the right side just under the lower deck you can see two in use (the others are still waiting to be used).
