Today Scott took me to meet with the Amish men that are making our cabinetry for our new house. I saw samples of their work and I have to say the cabinets are gorgeous! What craftsmanship. We also looked at the tools they use and all the machinery…all without electricity. It truly is amazing. There were also some beautiful secretary desks that they are working on. (I’ll keep that is mind for future reference:) I feel very blessed by all the people that God has brought into our lives as we build our house in this new area. Not only have we met some of the most friendly people around, but our house will be a display of such wonderful craftsmanship. Our house frame will be built by Amish men, as will our cabinets, bathroom vanities, and doors and trim. We are having concrete done with acid wash/stains. (if you have never seen acid washed concrete you can’t fully appreciate the artistic beauty of it.) Everyone that will be working on our house have been so friendly and kind to us, above and beyond. Yesterday, we met the man who will be doing our plumbing, at his house….what a beautiful spread he has. 75 acres with a beautiful pond. He invited us over to his house to celebrate the 4th of July—well us, and 200 of his closest friends and neighbors:) Sounds like fun.
We went for a drive today with the kids and with Scott’s parents. The countryside is just beautiful. Green rolling hills dotted with farms. It’s picture postcard perfect.
