The House on Hilltop Farm BLOG is a record of the progress on a home we are building ourselves. We bought the land in 2007, and started building the house in 2010. We lived in one room, 550 square feet, in the basement while we built the house above us. We moved on the main level of the house in February 2016. We decided blogging is the best way to record our journey. I'm glad to have you join me.
Well 2013 is coming to an end...and when I look where we were last year at this time, I can't believe how far we've come. We were living in the basement, and it wasn't even finished yet! Our main goal this past year was to finish the porches...and they are almost finished. We were concerned because the temporary porches were falling apart.And they hold up one end of the house!
Look how much better the porch looks with railings. We weren't planning on putting rails here, but they just added so much to the look of the porch
