Looks a bit different, and a bit sad!


It’s been a busy couple of weeks, and the normal work day starts before 8 and ends when it becomes too dark to work.  The gutting is complete, the doors and windows are all removed, and ready to be crated.  All of the “newer” windows and some other choice items went to the roadside so that they could go to good use on projects others have undertaken.

More friends, relatives and complete strangers are stopping by as the project shows more drastic changes.  The consistent theme has been one of thanks and appreciation for saving a great house.  Rusty is also hearing “Oh, you’re the guy…” more often.  He has not lived in Middleburgh for over 30 years, so although there are many old friends there, many new individuals have settled there.  I guess those who have known him for a long time are not the least bit surprised by this project!

The search continues for land, and the timeline for removing the carriage barn and other barn is being finalized.  Lots to do, and not a lot of time…
