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.

      Monica,

      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.

      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
