|Original owner, Mrs. Emma Cook by the fire at 314 Eighth Avenue North|
for the living room fireplace
in our new house.
The original Rookwood Pottery
tile mantle (pictured at left)
is unfortunately long gone.
A prior owner greedily removed
this valuable antique and sold it.
All we're left with
is a gaping black hole.
of all things incendiary,
we are finally going to have a GAS RANGE! After years of high rise living, we're thrilled at the prospect of cookin' with gas! Initially we turned the gas a little too high as I wanted an AGA while Frank preferred La Cornue.
It will be purchased from and serviced by
Weir's our local dealer. Located downtown on Main Street, they have been serving Central Montana for over fifty years!
|LOL! Could not resist inserting this image I found when I googled "woodsheds"! http://woodworkingease.com/1813/build-cheap-wood-shed/|
Friends have suggested a "pellet" stove. However, by their very nature the idea just doesn't feel right. We're surrounded by mountains covered with trees. And Montana is rich with coal. Why not use what we've got right here, right now?
Pull up a chair, set a spell, and warm yourself.
As we create our new home, our primary goal is to make it warm and welcoming. A place filled with love where we can enjoy our family and friends. Now if that isn't a dream come true, I don't know what is.
