Driving up to Tangledweed on the 5th I got a call from Rick about a problem. It seems my former plumber thought I wanted a rain forest in the new kitchen...

I won't mention the former idiot plumber's name (I'm saving that for my Angie's List review) but there is a speci...

The trickiest part of the insulation job was the walls. The installers were very reluctant to blow the insulation into the walls because they were afraid the pressure would blow out the old plaster.

What a difference expert carpentry and a paint job make. Rick has spent months rebuilding the exterior porches and replacing clapboards. Missy has been busy painting and look at the contrast between old & new! 

Rick is repairing a hole in the copper roof where once the...

A sad day at Tangledweed. Today we lost Buoy, our head supervisor and hardest worker. Buoy struggled for months with a tumor on his leg, which finally lead to his downfall. During the coldest days of winter and the hottest summer mornings, he was up with the sun and ke...

It was twelve short months ago when Missy & I drove to Stockbridge to look at property available for sale. One place really intrigued me: The Palmer Farm in Stockbridge. I felt certain Missy would be terrified of the place, based on the exterior pictures I saw on line....
