He and a friend, Dick Wolfgang, personally moved 4,250 blocks, each weighing 90 pounds, to create an oasis leading down to Kilbuck Lake.
“I wanted the challenge of building the wall,” said Mike. “I thought it would be good stress relief. Some people fish – I work.”
Award for Spectacular Tree House – Rob and Lana Ranahan
Rob and Lana Ranahan renovated a dilapidated home into one with a luxury kitchen, bathroom and living area. While these were expertly crafted by Rob himself, my attention was really stolen by the tree house — simply because I have seen nothing comparable.
Living in a camper during the first month of renovations may not be a parent’s dream, but Matthew, 11, and Tyler, 9, treated it as an adventure. Rob built them a two-story tree house so they can continue to “rough it” any time they like. Such detail work is evident in the structure that it is sure to be the site of many club meetings.
I am looking forward to meeting many more readers in 2014 so please don’t hesitate to contact me to recommend a home – even if it is your own. E-mail email@example.com.
