Wow. Last week saw some major improvements around the homestead! Lots of money spent with super satisfying results, which is way more fun than lots of money spent shocking wells or cutting down trees – though that was pretty fun too. What were we spending lots of money on you ask? Awesome new stuff! Awesome new stuff that come with tax and energy rebates, a warmer home and clear views!
We got a new woodstove! A. it is so awesome. B. it is so pretty. C. anything would be better than the disgusting Acme behemoth we had before.
We had the first floor windows replaced! Our old windows were metal framed, condensating, foggy, nasty ancient things and super inefficient. Water dripped off them every morning onto the lovely trim and coldness poured off them into the house. Gross. Discount Windows out of Junction City did a great job, were darned affordable AND we’ll get a sizable rebate from our utility company! What’s not to love? The crystal clear view of pasture and forest out our bedroom morning is certainly love worthy!
Big difference, ay? It is so amazing to be able to actually SEE out our windows- gee, imagine that. Definitely money well spent!
This weekend we’re all about the barn and outbuildings in preparation for rabbits and chickens! Check out the homestead update next week for before and after pictures of those projects. We’ve been putting our muscles and (lack of) construction skills to good use!
What are you up to this weekend?
