Eric & I were married on May 31st, 2008, just 2 days after my 27th birthday. We lived in Strange Creek for almost 2 years and then Eric and I began the construction of our home in February of 2009. We moved in on June 5th, 2010. We did 90% of work ourselves, with the help of friends and family. Everything turned out exactly how we planned and living in Clay, on the farm is a blessing everyday.
We finally got our customized rock! It took 3 months and I just couldn't be patient - I was excited for our rock and also to give Mom & Dad & Teddy & Diana theirs. Mom, Dad, Teddy & Diana all helped us so much on our house, we wanted to get them something special to show our appreciation. I'll try to get pics of theirs sometime.
I think they did a great job! Eric plans to set it in concrete and fix up the surroundings a little.
Our pear tree has lots of pears, they are currently hard as a rock but, will soon be perfect for eating - I can't wait.
It took a while for our sunflowers to bloom. I love them - don't pay attention to our weedy garden.
Here's a picture of the side of mom and dad's house. They're are installing Harding Siding on the upper floor - it looks really good but, it's a slow process.
This is the front, these two dormers will eventually hold beds.
