When Ron and I bought the Schlecte farm, we had no idea what all would come from this investment. Since that purchase we have gone through a major remodel of his cute little house. It was in too good of shape to tear down although nothing had been changed since the 70's when it was built. It even had the same builder's antique white on the walls and original carpet. The structure was in good shape though, and we began the process of installing a large front porch, new windows, new siding, lighting, a garage door, and many gallons of paint and flooring to update the garage and inside rooms. It is only 1,000 square feet but has a walk out basement that we are finishing now. There are three ponds on the property that needed a lot of cleaning up as well with the removal of lots of brush. This was the sight of Holly and Brad's wedding reception. We have since decided to build a retirement house for us on the property and Holly and Brad will be moving into our house where she will be the 4th generation to live on that property. The Quilt House will become a place to sew, create, and quilt for all of us as well as house guests and have parties. More pictures to follow when construction on the new house starts hopefully this spring.
