Bax Kean's old place? Or Janet & Duke's place?

Duke and I have owned this property, known to many as Bax Kean's place, since 1996.  It took us a long time to get the house and shop back up to scratch, and have had lots of help from family and friends along the way.

I think we've kept the integrity of the original design of the buildings, but I also think we've added enough of ourselves that it doesn't look like the old Kean place anymore.  We've added a greenhouse, a big woodshed, changed some colours, and have been working on the landscape too.  It's been a challenge, but I would highly reccommend renovating an old place over building new.  The character and history of the old buildings make them seem like well worn happy homes the minute you move in.
