We bought the farm! After 30 years of Chicago suburb living, we were relocated to rural Iowa. Instead of playing it safe and buying a house in town, we decide to jump right in and bought 4 acres in the country.

Getting to the Restoration of Gidget
So... looking back at that last time we posted, we are epic failures!  We get asked constantly how we get so much work around the house done with 3 kids and the proof is in the puddin'.  Sometimes it takes us a REALLY long time. We bought our little canned ...

Meet Gidget
2 weeks, 3 days.  That's all it took for these two DIY junkies to crave for our next project.  I suspect family members were taking bets on how long it would take us to become stir crazy in a rental house with no "next project" around the corner.  Andy and ...
