Choruses of singing birds have greeted us in the mornings. We added the Sunroom in 1998, which is comfortable the-year-around. From the 8 wide-windows we have watched the changing seasons.

We put in a new hot-water (natural gas fired) furnace in 2002. The Air Conditioning unit was new in 2004. An attic fan is helpful when it isn't hot enough to run the A/C. There are ceiling fans in the living room and the three bedrooms. New double-pane windows were installed in 1994. They are the type that fold-in so they can be cleaned from the inside.
