Follow our journey to transform a badly neglected farm house into a home. Learn what worked and what did not and see how our projects worked out.

It’s frustrating to be sitting around talking instead of working, but we cannot do as much of the work ourselves as we did over 20 years ago. We’ve talked to a providers for an updated water filtration system for the well, siding and basement waterproofing. The next few weeks will have even more appointments.

In the meantime, Dave managed to get most of the lawn mowed, Jack made friends with the frogs in the pond and I sucked up about 10 pounds of bugs using my old vacuum. I bought a new one about a month ago. I was debating on throwing out the old one even though it still worked. I’m glad I kept it around. Once all the dust and bugs are gone, I’ll be happy to throw it away.

  1. Cindi, it looks like both of your boys will have a great time in their new yard.
    What a great idea to chronicle and share your adventure.

  2. I am loving reading this and can’t wait to watch your new home come to life. Wow! Look at that beautiful property! Great purchase on the mower! It is information overload on all the decisions…
    we had a huge koi pond we dug. I want to make another. I can’t imagine actually having a pond though! You can ice skate one day…. ;). Stock with fish and let them eat the algae, etc. get you. A little eco system going.
    Fun! Looks like you don’t have to worry about neighbors ….I love farmland !
