Fireplace Lovin’

One of the things in our contract for buying our house was that the sellers agreed to do 3000 dollars worth of maintenance on the fireplace.  Fireplace works turns out to be really, really expensive!  Anyways, the hold up for having the fireplace work done was that we had a gas insert in the fireplace, so the insert had to be removed and the gas line had to be pulled back and capped.  The plumber was really expensive, so Jake did some research and did it himself!

This past weekend the work was finally completed and now we have a working fireplace!  It’s pretty awesome.  It doesn’t put out much heat, but it’s great for ambiance!  We’ve been having a ridiculous amount of s’mores and roasted marshmallows.  Yum!

Big News!

So, I’ve been meaning to do a big post here about some of the biggest news of our year: we bought a house! It’s about 55 years old and has a lot of great character.  We love it! The lot isn’t as big as we were hoping for, but there’s lots of great plants here as the previous owner was a great gardener.  The neat thing about our home is that the previous owners are the original owners!  They bought the house for 14,000 dollars about 55 years ago and raised all 3 of their kids here.  I love neat stuff like that!
