One really talented architect that we met with very early on told us that while he was interested in our project, he wasn’t interested in working with the old house. He recommended we tear it down, as tying a new building to the old house would be too problematic. I’m definitely glad we kept the house but there have been a few glitches. We’ve had a lot of rain lately and leaks where the roof of the house joins the roof of the new building. At this point we have all but one very elusive leak eliminated.

The warmer weather brought back the landscapers who managed to get just about everything other than sod done this week. Also, how I wish this outhouse was not in the middle of our new entrance.

The new fence posts are in and once everything is done they will bring the wood slats to complete the fence that surrounds the front yard.
