Our Farm House was built in 1940. It was owned, before us, by people that did not keep it up. Cleaning alone was a lot of work. It amazed us what a VERY Nice place we had bought! We knew we were buying a Honey of a Place, but DANG, what we keep finding, what we keep uncovering! Priceless!
God looked out for us. God made it all possible. For instance. We were told that the Jacuzzi did not work. About 2 weeks after we moved in, we had an electric glitch....and the Jacuzzi, STARTED WORKING! Why, YES! We have been enjoying that! Especially nice after a day of scrubbing this place down, or digging it out, or mowing, or riding our bicycles!
Who on earth?! Who?! Paints their Propane Tank and Fire Hydrant CAMOFLAUGE?! The people that owned this place before us. Seriously. Would not the Firemen 'be like', "Where is it! Where is it!"!! The Propane Man would not even fill the tank when we had him out, dark colors hit up the tank and expand the gases. They were ugly and an eyesore anyway. Now? Fire Hydrant Red, as it would have been 'back when', and the Propane Tank white, and filled!
One of the amazing things that we found was the Brick Way. Deron dug it out, it was covered over in dirt and grass and weeds. When we got it and the overgrown mess next to the house and front porch and propane tank cleaned out, FLOWERS SPRUNG UP! I told Deron it was a Thank You from the previous owners, now long gone, for taking care of the place they loved. But I really think it was a 'nod from God'. Taking care of what he has given into our hands now.
more to come and photo of before and after will be shared here
