Part 3: Reconstruction of the Farmhouse

We can’t leave the Farmhouse in such a state for too long!  All of that deconstruction made way for some major upgrades when the Farmhouse was put back together again-  central heat and AC, excellent insulation, modern plumbing that we won’t have to fix once a month, new standing seam metal roof, new windows that really work! 

Updated appliances, restored chimney,  solid construction throughout,  new bedroom and bathroom upstairs,  modern slope to the stairs-  much safer than the old, steep stairs!

Larger front porch with room to sit and talk, new upper level deck in back,- all these improvements to an old house that still feels old.  I really started to enjoy checking on the progress of the project-  each day brought delightful new details, and the Farmhouse really started to take shape.

Here’s a look inside when the house was partially finished.. the Living Room
