I spent the last two years making it brand new again. I filled all the cracks, redid the mortor, new cedar roof, new flooring, plumbing, electrical, and much much more. It's 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, dining room, living room, laundry and pantry room and kitchen is the center of the home. There is also an up stairs. Looks small but much room inside fir my family if four. We were going to build a round house and live on 40 acres off grid but we found this home that needed much love and we're up for the challenge. Now it's amazing and a very cozy home. Many people come to visit and fall in love with this beautiful home. 


The home had cracked both the wood and the mortar, so I took on the painstaking task of renovating.  Here's what it looked like before:
