My husband and I purchased this little “fixer upper” in 12/17 as a “3-5 year project”, with an eye toward retirement. He claims he’s only good for “lawn care and maintenance”, that I’m “administrative” and “a cleaner”, and our co-host is creative beyond belief...between the 3 of us, we’ve managed to finish this historical gem ahead of schedule... We can’t wait to share it with you!
