Another big milestone past. My project got a fresh coat of paint this week. The crew is working on the trim as we speak, so a final picture with trim and everything will be posted early next week.

    Wow! It looks great. I love the color you picked. You are almost done. What an accomplishment. It’s almost time to relax and play guitar. Post some pics of the back yard when you can.

      I do have new pictures and some project tips to post. I’ll do my best to get to it this weekend.

      At this point I am not sure if it’s dedication that drives me. I have lived in the house throughout the project, so it’s really about survival and trying to reclaim some normalcy in my life.

      I suppose I could cut corners and skimp on materials, but I wanted to respect the house. It has a history and life of it’s own that will outlive me. I hope the work I am doing will allow the house to attract caregivers who will help it age gracefully over its next hundred years.

    WOW! I love your front door it goes very well with the house, I been looking at your website for a while and you are doing a wonderful job, I been getting a lot of ideas from it, specially your kitchen, your wife must love it. My husband and I are remodeling our kitchen and your project had been an inspiration for us.

      it’s nice to know that people look at my blog from time to time.

      no wife — I am doing this project 100% for me. It’ a lot easier, you never have to argue about color selections. That said, as I guy I am pretty sure I would screw the colors up on my own, so I hired a female architect. She consults with me on color selection and how to keep the design consistent with the period of the home. It’s been a huge help – I don’t have to repaint rooms multiple times.

      I am having a trestle table made for this kitchen — it has to be 30″X60″ to fit the space and that’s an odd size. I will also have a formal dining room for larger diner gatherings.

      oh I can’t wait to be done – good luck on your remodel
