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 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.

Family RoomHere's a view of our family room, which features a second fireplace and wet bar, as well as cedar walls. We purchased a leather sectional and matching coffee table for this room, and also new carpet. This is a great place to sit by the fire and watch a movie. This is how it looked before we got our current TV. These days, we have a LCD flat panel where the picture is over the fireplace.

Front ViewHere is the front of our home as it looked when we bought it. We've made quite a few changes: replacing the front entry and storm doors (the old one was Barbie Pink -- no kidding! If you click on the image to view the large one and zoom in, you can kind of tell), trimming back the overgrown foliage, removing the awnings, and adding green decorative shutters on all four windows. We also replaced the driveway, and widened it to the width of the rock in the picture above.
