Wool Warms Pennsylvania House

It is amazing to me to see wonderful homes built almost 200 years ago that are getting a second chance at being that beloved family home bursting again with family, friends and laughter.

One of Oregon Shepherd's Pennsylvania clients is doing just that for a
home built by the Markley Family in 1834.  Members of the family had lived in the house continually for six generations until Meriam Markley died at the age of 107.  Meriam's children are now in their 70's and 80's and none live in the area so they decided to sell the family home.

After serving overseas as an F-16 Pilot, our client found this home  and felt it was the perfect place to return to his roots.  He says that it has been vacant for several years and that the last major renovations were done in the late 1950's so it needed a lot of work.  This stone farm house had little if any in the way of insulation.  The walls are two foot thick stone so they did not need insulation but the attic and the under floor did.

We were so excited to be working with this client and to be able to meet his insulation needs and his timeline that I took a picture of the crew when they had the order ready for shipment to Pennsylvania.  Here are John, Jordan and Joey with a shipment of four pallets of Oregon Shepherd PermaLoft, 100% all-natural wool insulation, Pennsylvania bound!
