First off, hello all. My family and I finally moved back to Nova Scotia from BC this February. May 1st we bought our first home. Our best guess is that it was built 1890ish. We then proceed to do a top to bottom Reno. Our 2nd and 3rd children were born sep 11 (twins), oldest child 20 months. We then moved in for the first time right out of the hospital.

I've finally finished installing the fusion stone and soapstone hearth around the fireplace. One more down, too many to go lol. I plan to tie this into the supply of our forced air system. Before the snow flys hopefully.
