Sneak Peek - Finished Drapes
We first saw our old house from a distance in 2001--we used to drive by the house on our way to get groceries in Stevens Point every other weekend, and we'd sit in the driveway for 15-20 minutes just to admire it and wonder, "wouldn't it be great if someday we could fix up this old house?" We repeated that viewing and pondering over and over again for six more years until 2007.
Our house sat vaccant for 37 years until we had the great opportunity to buy it. By the time we were the third owners there was no water, the electricity coming into the house looked like 2 kite strings, the dining room ceiling was partially on the floor, and the porches were falling down. BUT nearly everything in the house (woodwork, hardware, floor plan, windows) remained the same since it was built in 1893.
