July 3, 2020 Our friends and hosts, Michelle and Tony, dropped by to check things out. Luckily Tony is handy with tools, and Michelle has enough enthusiasm to go around for everyone! A house tour and a few cleaning chores to start… Tony was able to fix a leak from the water tank valve, and managed to find a replacement for the oversized water filter, fitting for an oversized house. The filter and bottom of the tank were filled with mud and crud, so we felt a little better about completing that job! But when we were looking in the oil tank room, we kept hearing a scritching noise that we couldn’t seem to identify… Tony and Bob climbed up on the tanks to see where it was coming from – surprise! the wall behind the tanks was filled with a carpenter ant colony – and the wall outside was covered with some kind of rubber type sheathing (remember, this is only Day 2). Luckily a Lowe’s is not too far away, and they carry all kinds of serious insect killing products… sticking a nozzle into the foam insulation and squirting a couple cans in there decreased the sounds of activity dramatically. Sheesh. The permanent solution and repair will have to wait for another day! Enough excitement already….
Welcome to our world!
We found the most amazing house in Lee, NH and purchased it in the summer of Covid, 2020. This is the story of how we fell down the rabbit hole… our story begins in May 2020, and while I’ve been documenting all along, blog entries are somewhat behind (but will catch up)! For the story from the beginning, go History of the Black Sheep Project, “select a month” and start from the bottom to read in chronological order. Gallery photos within each post should enlarge with one click; use the back arrow to return to the blog post (or some photos may open in a new window). There is also a search bar for the entire website. Have fun, and down the rabbit hole we go.

Wow, the stuff you guys are learning is amazing. New strange chemicals, new bugs, new systems… but look at all the great things – new home, new adventures, new friends, new challenges and a new oversized garage!
You are so right! We are truly expanding our horizons 🙂
