Sorry to have disappeared so completely. I am doing well, just struggling to find any words and a reason to go looking for them again.
There is not much interesting happening here, but that does not mean that there is nothing interesting going on. Farm Buddy has tackled some big projects this year and one of them has been some long awaited house repairs.
I tried to find a decent before photo.....
Things always get worse before they get better (especially when I am taking pictures with my iPod and making the pictures even worse with clumsy fingers getting in the way).
It is quite amazing what a pressure washer can do in the right hands....
And equally amazing what a simple coat of primer can accomplish.
This farm house is about 200 years old. It needs a bit of TLC, but it is still a sound and beautiful structure.
Nowadays, people are lucky if they get 10 years out of a new house before it needs major repairs. After 200 years, this house needed a few boards replaced and a good paint job.
It is still a work in progress and I need to get back over with the camera and get some better pictures, but the old place is looking mighty spiffy these days.
