One Year Ago Today

One year ago today we moved into the old victorian. We bought the house April 16, 2007.

The first year was full of surprises and lots of hard work--our old house sat vaccant for 35 years, we didn't have water, and required new electrical service. During the first year we removed all the wallpaper, and repaired and replastered all the ceilings and walls downstairs. Jon insulated the exterior walls and attic. I'm glad most of the dirty work is behind us.

March 2008 to present. We scraped and painted the exterior of the house from the safety of a bucket truck. During the fall of 2008 we added a wood burning furnace and repaired walls in one of the bedrooms upstairs, and started working on upstairs bathroom.
