Hello Everyone!

About Me

I have been a 'handy girl' all my life; helped my daddy roof our house, build an outbuilding, change oil, fix flats and generally helped do any repair home projects. I farmed and trained horses for 20 years. Now my husband and I are working on our 1960's ranch house with basement. Just gutted and remodeled our kitchen: had hickory cabinets installed with granite countertops, we did the tile floors and took out 3 doors, putting in a new support beam, to open the space between the living room and kitchen and hall...... all by ourselves! Need to finish living room and put a door in dining area that will lead to the deck we have to build. We want steps off deck to lead to a patio on basement level. Have been thrown off by a leaky basement. Will have to finish that before we move on. Our two boys are grown and we have 3 grandsons. My husband has a bad back so we work around that also. God has blessed us and we hope to finish all our projects one day soon.
