hello. Welcome to our nook near the shores of Lake Lovely aka Lake Michigan. We have purchased a 100+ year old farmhouse on 5 acres. Feel free to follow us as we enter into the unknown world of renovations. Here we go!
Happy new year! Progress is being made and the walls are tumbling down. In order for the electrical and plumbing to be updated, the walls need to come down to the studs. We've got three rooms almost complete and the stairway done. Mounds and mounds of plaster are piling up. This stuff is mess-y! But it feels good! Up next..the kitchen, enclosed porch and the living room. Thanks to Tony and electrician, Bill, for trailing through a blizzard to come down from Grand Rapids to take a look!
Look at what we found underneath the blue shag carpet! Wood stairs painted white with years of tread. A dream I say! I love, love, love them! These babies will be staying exactly as they are. Right, honey?
We are a family of 3. (Actually 17,counting 7 barn cats, 4 chickens, 2 ducks and a dog named, Bubba. We moved from metro Detroit to southwest Michigan in 2011. We fell in love with the area. In December 2013, we closed on a house. A home.
