We bought a farmhouse! I’m so happy I want to scream it to the world. Seriously, we have been wanting to buy this house for many moons. You see, we raised our children in this house. They grew up living a kid’s dream with fields to run through, a creek to play in, deer to visit with and chickens to run after. The kids got older and we moved to town for a few years, always wanting to be back at this house and then it was finally up for sale!
First things first, we had to work on the drainage. We dug trenches and installed perforated pipe, directing water away from the house. This was done at all four corners of the house and has made quite a difference.
