Not really our new house but I guess it will be a new home to us when we move back in.
My parents bought the place in 1971 when I was 3 years old. I grew up in this house. My parents had a vision and a dream for this place. They worked hard on the house with some help from my grandfather and we boys did what we could. Life however has a way of changing ones plans.
My mom passed away in 1983. My brother moved out and went to college and a few years later I did the same. Now, 30 years later, I am looking to move back in.
Dad built a smaller craftsman style home on the farm and moved out of the old stone house. Now I am currently in the middle of some major renovations on the old home place.
I started a blog about the house back in October of 2014 and thought I would share it here. The blog tells a bit of known history about the place. There are entries down the left side starting back in 2014. It will follow along with current work that is being done as well as go back to work that was done in the past.
