Over the years...

The fun thing about buying a home with history, is that it has history.

We know the woman that owned it before us was a metal artist and created these HUGE metal sculptures.

From what we've been told she developed carpel tunnel and can no longer create her art. Such a shame. She made amazing things. The building you see on the right and the silos are still there, the building on the left is gone.  

Our neighbor, two doors down, was the original owner of the house and it used to be a working farm. We didn't get a chance to meet him and talk story last time, but is is definitely on our to do list for next time. 

While looking at the property on Google earth I discovered that you can view a spot over the years. Amazing how it has changed over the past 20 years, not to mentions how the quality of the satellite photos have improved over the same time. Take a walk with me

This is the latest photo. It was taken after it became ours.

This photo was taken in 2010. As you can see, it was a busy place. The big building with the silver roof burned down to the ground and that flat top building is gone too. Behind the house you see the foundation they put in for a 2400sqf Kodiac Kit house. We know that they received the kit and put it up for sale before it was  ever built.

This photo was taken in 2006. You see that there is another building next to the one with the silver roof. Not sure what happened to that, but we'll find out :o)

This photo was taken in 2005. So green!

This was in 2002 and there is another unknown in the picture. Looks almost like they might of had honey bees.

This is the last one, from 1992. The quality of the few between 1992 and 2002 are so poor, I didn't bother, but I did want to share the first one they have posted.

Aloha Hui Hou!
