In terms of the weather, I don't know what is considered cold to you but the last couple of years, it has been really cold in December. I'm talking pants and heavy jackets.

    Yep, today we become house hunters. No, our home hasn't sold yet, although we have some lookers coming over the weekend. But Hubby wants to look this weekend and get a feel for what's out there, prices, etc. I'm a little nervous about it. It's been over 35 years since I last looked for a...

    There is probably a better place for this question, but has anyone ever had a ranch house that they added on to? Either building another floor or added out? We are considering doing this right now, but I'd like to hear from others who have done it.:feedback:

    I'm searching for any type & size of colonial saltbox houses..... I'm trying to develop a "style" for our new home & I really, really like the SaltBox style!! Maybe I'm just homesick for the Olde Towne Fredericksburg style that I was raised in the midst of, but I'm addicted to them!! Let me...

    Here they are... I made these Butterfly Houses for my parents and grandparents. I also printed alot of butterfly info online and made nice little books out of it to go with them. Hard to believe they started as rough cut cedar fence posts! Edited to add: Sorry the picture is a little fuzzy.
