You guy’s have taken on some project with this one. Will be well worth it though.
Way to go great job guys. 😉
Thanks Ken, another hundred years and we might be getting there!
Nice to see you thinking positively Helen. ; )
Thanks for sharing. I can’t wait to see the finished workshop. Woodworking in such a beautiful setting should provide some great inspiration.

You two are living the dream baby. Do you need a highly paid shop monkey?…Vic

That’s a wonderful place guys! You have plenty of room for your own sawmill and drying sheds. Any plans to start your own lumberyard?
enjoyed the video. Enjoy your journey –

At this rate you guys will be finished restoring that farm before I get my bathroom renovation finished. If you plan to have classes, it looks like it’ll be a dream destination.
I do wish that you had lingered longer with the camera, so much to see but so little time for one to see the finer detail.
But, thanks anyway.

Looks like a lot of work but should be lovely when it’s finished. The dog seems to like it 🙂

Nice Buildings to work with. It’s hard to imagine you doing all that yourselves. What beautiful countryside. How can you possibly make a living while you are working on it? It must be great to live there!!!
Good find you two! I’m sorry I don’t live closer, I’d stop by and lend a hand. I hope you’re just as handy with a trowel as you are with a plane. there is a lot of brickwork to repair. Looks great now and will only improve with time and effort.
Fabulous project. We completed a 200 year old barn conversion into our home 10 years ago. So we can appreciate the challenges ahead especially when having to hold down a paying job as we worked on the conversion. Looking forward to progress reports. It might look daunting now, but, setting doable smaller projects/goals and then celebrating those successes will get you through it. Enjoy the process, you’ll have some great stories and memories in the years to come about what you have accomplished. Best of luck and remember to keep smiling and laughing.
Was the main house in similar disrepair ?
I’m available as a low paid deputy assistant floor sweeper.

This is the first blog I’ve ever found that I’ve been motivated to go right back to day one and read the whole way through. It’s utterly inspiring and has certainly made me stop and think of my own methods and motivations.
I’ve only one complaint; no music credits! Would I be right in my guess that this is yet another talent of the fair Helen?
