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.

Yard and Gardens

One of the main reasons we liked this home was that we fell in love with the lot it was on It's situated on 8/10 acre, and includes a natural pond. It also includes a large raised garden in back.

Back ViewThe back of the house, as it appeared in 2002. On the left is a portion of the large main garden (left unplanted that year). We've since filled it with vegetables and flowers. Under the canopy to the left is our hot tub, which came with the house. Soaking in the spa after a hard day's work is great! The box in the foreground is a compost bin which we repaired after this picture was taken. Finally, in 2005, we replaced the deck with a new larger one with yard access.

Upstairs BathHere's a view of our upstairs bathroom, which we totally redecorated. As with most of the house, this room was previously entirely almond -- walls, trim, vanity... It didn't look bad but we wanted something a bit more colorful. We went with a olive/navy color scheme, redid all the trim in white (which we also did throughout the house), upgraded the light bulbs, and added a couple new brass towel bars. Eventually, we plan on redoing the tub/shower area (not shown) and perhaps a more major remodel later.

Back YardA view of part of our back yard, with Cathy and Bailey still playing. By late fall when this picture was taken, our pond (in the background) had obtained a bright green coating. Starting in 2003 we retained a pond service to help with this condition and keep the pond in better shape.
