First Day of School

We didn’t have much of a summer break, but after taking a couple of weeks off, school is back in session in the Osborn house! This year we have a second grader, a first grader and a preschooler!  I decided that even though we aren’t going back to school in the traditional sense that I could…

Virtual Tour

    Drumroll please… Here is the house!  Imagine you are walking through the front door with us.  First you come into the mudroom.   If you turned around here’s what you would see.  That’s the front door (and a few others that haven’t been hung yet.) Then comes the dining area complete with table…
