The Grand Opening

We are so excited.  Russell has owned the place for over twenty years and has put his heart and soul into building and maintaining a beautiful place to live and enjoy life.  We both have grown children and are now experiencing life as empty nesters. 
The Homestead was concieved after the passing of his dad this past spring.  I have been moving things out of a house I had locally and Russell inherited many collecitbles and antiques from his dad.  WE HAD RUN OUT OF SPACE...  We decided to not renew our tenants lease in the apartment downstairs and expand into the space with all of our beautiful things.  We were sorry to see her go as she was wonderful but it was time to expand or end up having a very LARGE garage sale.
So on July 28th, 2012, we set about with the renovation of the full bath down there and repainted all the walls and put a circular staircase.  We finished on August 1st which was a little late for the college opening but that's ok - we were more concerned with getting it perfect.
So the place is open!  Welcome and Enjoy your Stay!
