Now we just have to fix it
up nice enough to live in!
|Come see the
place, but be ready to be put to work! :-)
We've been here for three years and have decided to stay. We're going to move in properly now. We can use all the help we can get, so if you have a hankering to hammer, dig, paint or spackle, come visit! We'll put you up and feed you and everything...

About the house...
Yamhill is a quiet little town. The school is two blocks away and both the boys love school, Phoenix is in Kindergarten and Gryphon is in a 2/3 split class (he's a 2nd grader). Most of the income in the area is from farming and antique stores as far as we can tell. The house has a pool and a hot tub and will be an excellent place for The Elliotts to start entertaining again soon. We are planning on regular BBQ's and SCA gatherings, and what ever other excuses for a party we can think of. Right now mostly to celebrate the new arrival (just the materials for building the new shop roof and loft! Don't get over excited!). The house is over 100 years old being built in 1890. There is a lot of work to do in the house, pool, hot tub, pond/water feature, and whatever else we look at, but it should all be worth it in the end.
More info about the new house:
The hot tub on the deck is
something we are really looking forward to using again. We had it
working, but something stopped working after a few short weeks and now
we can't get it to start again. The pool, well, the pool is in need of a
liner, and we can go from there to see what else it is lacking.
The stuff for it all seems to be there, but we have to try out the
equipment somehow to see if it'll still work or not.
Time to dream of the day when the house is all painted and renewed is over, and we are ready to sell some stuff off and make room for our stuff. We need to banish all the boxes, and get our stuff all put away or sold off! I want a shop where I can make stuff instead of a huge storage warehouse full of stuff I don't want or need anymore! I have a bunch of tools and I plan to use them!
Hope to see everyone sometime soon!
