Before we could move in there was some prettying that needed to be done...ahem
And here is a sneek peak at the progress....I will devote a whole post to the "after" in a couple of days...after we are all moved in and decorated.
Pretty much almost every surface has been painted. My favorite was painting the concrete floor (cheapest flooring ever!) My least favorite has been the trim...basically because it takes about 5 coats even with killz primer...which would explain why the trim and doors still aren't done *sigh*
It is definitely lacking in creature comforts...the shower is out the door and down around the back of the main farm house in the basement. That's right folks on any given day you may see me or the kids tromping across our yard in golashes and a bath robe. Derrick has vowed to use the gym shower at 24 hour fitness.
On the upside we have a new cat that we saved from being coyote food. She was wandering around the farm a bit skinny and haggered when we gave a her a bowl of milk...that pretty much made her ours and we love her. We named her Lucky (original huh?) because we felt she was pretty lucky to have found us. She's turning out to be quite the farm cat though...she's already a mouser
We also have a farm bunny
And some goats
Life on the farm is pretty good
Stay tuned for all of our farm misadventures, and the highly anticipated after pictures of our little farm house...
