Hello all! Plans to have the main roof replaced are well under way. Top priorities aside from the roof include rebuilding the bathrooms and the kitchen. We originally planned to demolish the kitchen and "mudroom" and build new (we expected approval from the State as the kitchen is not part of the original structure) but the appraisal came in so low that the money required to make up the difference cost us our new kitchen. Charlie and the boys now plan to rebuild the kitchen and mudroom inside the framing that currently exists. We have invited all who wish to take a look to stop by -- we plan to be there most weekends and Charlie will be there during the day on some week days. The front and back porches also have sections that have to be replaced. We expect to move in sometime in May....

Hi Parker Family,
Hi Lisa, I didn't know you had a love for the Civil War era. I will certainly check out the movie at Smoot---I read everything I could find on Lincoln as a youngster so this is very exciting for me! Stop by and chat and I can't thank you enough for the use of the trailer--it has been a Godsend---thank you!
