Now that we are settled in our new home and I am back online, I thought I would share with you guys a little about the house. I uploaded some pics yesterday to Flickr if you want a quick tour. Even though the house is in good shape, I would still classify it as a "fixer-upper" - and we plan to, as we can, do a lot of painting and refinishing and even a small amount of remodeling. (Now would be a good time for me to work in my market research link)
We have a riding lawn mower now and it has been quite a blessing already. The yard is huge (2.86 acres) and a portion of that we don't even have to mow right now since it is fenced in with a barn. I guess you would consider it pasture? I can't even imagine if people use a push mower with that much to mow!
I am definitely taking any decorating hints that I can get. It is my job to start researching carpets and prices. Dick really wants carpet and I think I do too - although I know it will be a lot of work!
