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.

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.

Family RoomAnother view of our family room. The wet bar is in the back corner. The cedar walls also extend to the lower hallway and bathroom, giving this area a distinct and casual feel as compared to the upstairs.

Living Room at ChristmasHere is a view of our living room taken Christmas 2002. We really enjoy the fact that our home features two brick fireplaces (our previous home didn't have any). The large windows overlook the back yard and pond. We purchased new furniture for this room and completely painted and redecorated it.

Previous Owner's BedroomThis picture shows the master bedroom as the previous owner had it. This bedroom is one of four in the home. We made major changes to the look in here as well-- new draperies, paint scheme, and new carpet. We'll get a picture of it here sometime soon.
