I thought it would be fun to
share a few photos of the outside of our home
and how it has looked over the years.
The first picture was taken in the early 1900’s.
The steeple had been taken down and a new metal roof had been installed.
The inside of the schoolhouse had been converted into a private residence
and was now a farmhouse.
We believe this picture was taken in the 1930’s.
We know the well was capped during this time because the
date is on the well next to the pump.
The next couple of pictures were taken in
1984 before the house went under renovation to be converted into a B&B.
This is how the house looked when we bought it in 2003.
It had started to fall into disrepair again, there was ivy growing on the
inside of the house upstairs and the plaster was cracking badly.
The back wall of the house was bulging and needed to be rebuilt along
with a very long list of other issues.
The house today……
Over the years we have given
up vacations and a lot of other luxuries
so we could save this house.
In the end I wouldn’t trade it for anything though!
Have a great weekend my friends!
a la’ prochaine!
