Don't you love the color? I think I'll repaint the kitchen this color one day.
We started the renovation process on this house the summer we bought it, but haven't made time to do much more (we've gained 2 children, 2 degrees, and a second house since we bought The Shanty!). We removed all of the lathe and plaster and 3 chimneys as well as the floor.
The front door which used to be closed.
Hello front door.
The back door:
I loved the reflection that I caught in the window.
Back of the house:
The yard is HUGE! An acre is gigantic. Our property now is on a half acre and it takes me 2 ½ hours to mow! This is going to take forever. We want a huge garden and a berry patch to fill up the yard though.
Part of the orchard is big and established, but these trees are only a few years old.
Our property ends at the white fence. It will be the perfect yard for kids one day.
Well, there you have it; The Shanty at its best. We love where we are but can't wait to live closer to our family. There is something magical about cousin relationships and sleepovers at Grandma's house. We want all that and more for our kids because our parents sacrificed to give that to Thomas and I as children.
Thanks for that Mom and Dad.
