Our farm viewed from Sugarloaf Mountain3087 viewsThis is the view of our farm from the top of Sugarloaf Mountain looking west. The first large open area that goes the full width of the picture is our farm. The pastures from one end to the other are 1/2 mile long. You can't see the house because it sits down behind the trees.55555

The Girls Bedroom Before2398 viewsThis was the worst room in the house. The windows were boarded up, and plaster was falling off the walls. At first glance it did not appear to have much potential other than a storage area. But look at the after picture and see what was hiding under the plaster.11111

Joel digging out cracks in the plaster1286 viewsThe plaster was hard and kept wearing down the point on our tools. So we made a tool using case hardened cut nails sharpened to a point and inserted it into a stick of wood. We kept sharpening the nails when they got dull. It worked much better than anything we could have bought.
