    Ugh, yes. We mowed the front yard last weekend for the first time and it needs it again already. But the back yard is a nightmare.

The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
