What's New

Check here from time to time to see what's new around the house and farm.

February 2016

A new storage building was added behind the house.
It's the perfect place for the charcoal grill,
outdoor furniture, and tools.

January - August 2015

Why, almost everything was new in 2015!
Complete renovation took place on the remainder of the house,
resulting in the beautiful  home you see on the House Tour pages.

 A pond was built behind the house and
stocked with fish. Please be patient as we allow the pond
and all its inhabitants to get established.

June 2014

Now you can enjoy a fire in the backyard in the evenings,
perfect for roasting marshmallows or hot dogs.

Our first landscaping project is a flower bed to
hide the well cap near the  back porch.

April 2014

A brand new washer and dryer are now available for guests...
and no more hauling laundry back and forth for Nancy, either!

January 2014

At last! A telephone! It's a good old-fashioned land line
that gives guests access to free, unlimited local and toll-free calls.

October 2013

A trio of Blue Willow plates found a home in the bathroom.
Blue Willow has been Nancy's everyday dishes for most of her life.
She and Robin still use them every day.

Nancy made this skirt for the laundry room sink. Indoor plumbing came to the house in the late 1950s, when this sink was installed in the new bathroom. Now it's only a few feet away from its original location.

September 2013

This old photo of the smokehouse and Jill the workhorse was taken
in the 1970s. We had it framed and hung it in the dining/bedroom.

Nancy's Aunt Jessie did this redwork embroidery in 2002, at age 85!
