We moved away in 1997 to be closer to family in Wisconsin and to get better care for our middle daughter who has special needs. Since we plan to move back someday, we've kept our home here and rent it out through an onsite management company.
We've made improvements over the years. Here is a view of the kitchen from the dining room- these were originally separate rooms with a "pass-through" portal to move food from the kitchen to the dining room.
A few years ago, we added a much larger deck (1325 square feet) and can now accommodate wedding parties. We also upgraded the beds with Tempur-pedic mattresses and most recently converted two attic wings to livable space- on the West side of the house there is now a "Study" with a convertible full-size futon, and on the East side, a two sink bathroom as part of the Master Bedroom.
