We officially own the 1907 house and acreage on Kootenay Lake in Harrop, BC just 20 minutes outside Nelson, BC. Andrew left yesterday with Mikka and they arrived today to start on our major renovation of the Harrop house. I am staying here in North Vancouver to work and pay for the mortgage and other expenses so that Andrew can work on the house for the next 6 month or so. We will have some help with foundation repairs, beams, well and a new septic field. Most of everything else Andrew is planning on renovated himself. This is a huge challenge for Andrew to take on but this has been a dream of his for a long time. And now the dream has become realty. It’s scary and daunting but I am proud of him and I believe in him and know that he will turn this into our dream home. I’ll be making trips to visit and help out when I can. Apparently, Mikka is loving the property all ready. This is her home now and I am so excited for her to live here in her prime and her retirement. Here we come! The adventure begins!
