Amish craftsmen built our barn quite a number of years ago. It took them two to three days. When they finished, there was no indication they had ever been there. The site was clean with no debris anywhere. Their workmanship was beyond compare.
There is a carpenter, Mose, who lives "right down the road" from Greg who made all of the cabinetry in his home. He also made much of the cabinetry in our daughter, Tessa's home. All high quality. Sometimes he got things wrong (he seems to have trouble following directions) but he always made good by it.
For a long time I've been following the blog, A Joyful Chaos, A Joyful Chaos . Mary Ann writes about growing up Amish and her life after leaving the Amish community. If you aren't already reading her blog, give it a go. Hers is a very simple, easy to read, writing. A Joyful Chaos is hosting a giveaway of another blogger, Saloma, who left the Amish Community.
It appears the Amish life that Saloma escaped from was anything but ideal. You can read about her experiences and register for a giveaway of her new book, Why I Left the Amish, About Amish. I'm looking forward to reading Saloma's blog and her book.
So, if you are interested in the Amish way of life, or just want a good read, check out these two blogs. You will be glad you did.
