Schmidt Homestead

Our new home in Woodburn, IL

We finally got rain last night! A big storm came thru and gave us 1.4” overnight. We lost electricity a little after 9, and it woke us up when the lights came back on around 12:30.

We heard from the asbestos inspector about the old house yesterday. He said that he found asbestos in the window caulk in the downstairs addition (the previous owner’s bedroom) and on the exhaust pipe from the furnace. That was it. It just so happens that we like the windows from the addition, and Steve planned to take them out to reuse in a greenhouse. Also, Steve has a friend in the jeep club whose job is to do asbestos removal. Steve is going to talk to him about coming out to help get rid of what’s on the furnace exhaust. Sounds like it shouldn’t be too big of a deal.
