Don was here for the past week… I am hoping to compile all the pictures that were taken by Mom, Don and Ang in the next few days. (EDIT.. I just updated a bunch of pictures to the June folder in Picasa… Click that link to the left to be taken there)
That big news I alluded to last month has gone bust. Ang and I had placed a bid on a farm that was up for sale down the road. It would not have been nice enough for us to move… But Ang wanted the land if we ever decided to build in the future. As far as I was concerned… It was a wash… Terrible house, nice land… I have not been in the mood to start a whole new project house!
Finished the front porch… FINALLY! Pictures soon.
We have contacted a local contractor to start work on our back porch. (Now that I know money wont be locked up in a real estate transaction) We are hoping that a little remodel will make the porch usable and efficient. 2 thing it lacks right now.
Propane costs have nearly doubled for next winter. We locked in at 1.64/gal last year… We go through a 1000 gallons over the winter season easily. This year we are looking at 2.64 a gallon if we lock in now. (You know we will). So, anything we can do to the house to make it more efficient is a good thing!.
Solar panels next?
