The Tuscany-Inspired Villa

Our villa is a process. It began in April 2005 and Lord-willing in the next few months will be completed (we lack landscape…rolling hills covered with vineyards and orchards, flowering grasses, well-worn paths, and large shade trees). We’ll we’ve got 1/3 of an acre–so it may be a little less than the beautiful hills of Tuscany! But it’s our villa and we love it!

Here are some pictures of the progress:

More to come as we get near the end!
