They redid the foundation of the barn and house, added support to the interior of the barn to ensure its stability, and added a French drain to divert water from the foundation of both the barn and house. They redid the basement in the house, digging it out, lining it, adding new gravel, French drains and a sump pump. They also updated the kitchen, modernized the plumbing throughout the house, added insulation, and added a reclaimed asphalt driveway with matting and gravel.
