With my grandparents passing the cleaning out of their 100 year old farm house, barn and out buildings fell to us. I embarked on my furniture refinishing adventure of the summer/fall of 2013. We began the total gut and full on renovation/restoration in April 2014, now it is fifteen months later and we just moved in and can mark the end of the renovation! *phew!!!* Check out more at

I told the plumbing pipe that I hated it and it promptly told me it hated me more by giving me a black eye and a cut... I now tell it I love it every day. @GrandmasHousDIY

Some day we plan on taking the fence another few panels down to our property line, right now it only goes about half way but it sure looks nice though! Those fence panels were only $27 at home depot! What a deal! @GrandmasHousDIY

Joe really is my hero, here is cutting the hole for our new french door with a window beside it. @GrandmasHousDIY

With everything coming down I can really start to see the 2nd floor master bathroom and master bedroom. I think it's going to be amazing! First thing is first though, time to shovel all of the plaster, insulation and lath down to the 1st floor to be hauled out to the dumpster! Phew! Was this all really my idea?! @GrandmasHousDIY
