You all know we built our house. And for those of you who didn’t know that, now you do 🙂
As all homeowners know, your house will NEVER be complete. There seems to always be one project or another that you’re working on. It’s a never ending process.
When we moved into our newly built house, Jared’s grandfather had not one, but THREE gifts for us. His grandfather is an amazing woodworker. Keep in mind, this man just turned 90 years old this past February! Which, would have made him 88 when he made our gifts for us. Amazing.
He made us a swing for our front porch, which I absolutely LOVE. I really cannot wait until I can actually sit out there with a cup of coffee and a book and watch Lincoln play. He also made us this ginormous birdhouse. Seriously, the birds that will be living in this house are going to have a mansion, it’s crazy insane. And he also made us a beautiful wishing well, to place over the well we have.
