What the listing forgot to mention is that the people who lived there before us had 9 cats (indoor with no litter-boxes), a new puppy being housetrained (they had newspaper on the carpet in front of the fireplace), doors that didn't open all the way because there was too much stuff, rooms with pink walls, rooms with yellow walls, holes in the walls, wall paper that was peeling, paint on the stained wood moldings, not much grass (the pictures are doctored), holes in the bathtub, a thing of speedstick in the toilet in the master bath and both bathroom sinks were cracked.

We closed on it back in December of 1998 and have been working on it ever since. It took us until Super Bowl Sunday (1999) before we could move in full time.

Every surface has been redone, things are added all over and of course there are always works in progress. We would also like to say thanks to the of the people who broke a sweat when they didn't need to like: Don, Jay, Walt, James, Emmerson, Bill, Guido, Sue, Claselle, Rick, Forest, Walter, Adam, and the rest of you.

This just in, see the building of the new deck!!!
