Initial Interest

Laura dreamed of restoring the farmhouse since her youth.  Not long after graduating from college and settling down in the area, Dave and Laura first expressed formal interest to Grandpap Jack and Grandma Betty in eventually buying the property and fixing up the farmhouse that was sitting mostly abandoned for over 15 years.  However, Jack wasn’t ready to sell.  Maintaining the grounds (“putzing around the farm”) would remain one of Jack’s favorite pastimes for the remainder of his years.
