Over the past four years we have spent countless hours transforming the interior of this old house. We finally got around to doing something on the exterior. What a difference a few months can make. We learned several things on the journey this summer. First, hiring a painter, someone to install gutters, and a landscape architect are all great ideas. As much as we love do-it-yourself projects, time has become a luxury in recent months. As of December I will be done with school. I am looking forward to reclaiming my evenings and weekends and getting back to projects. For now, I will just enjoy the benefits of someone elses labor.
It's been eleven months since we last posted. Yes, we are still alive. No, I do not have false precepts that anyone still follows after this time, but I'm writing anyways. I'll have to catch up with a montage of pictures of what has happened in the last year, but for now this is it. More to come.
