On the journey of restoration and rebirth of an old soul, in the form of an abandoned pre-revolutionary house resting quietly in a field....

Sunrise through a fog bank, up the road a ways
The living room, view from the front door looking into the southwest corner
Living room, view from the southwest corner looking towards the front door
Living room, view from the bottom of the stairs looking towards the west
View towards northwest corner of house, out the front porch
View from back door, stairway, new laundry and half bath in new hallway.
Ahh, making much progress now, you can really see the home emerging. It's fun to look at the before and after photos and realize how much work and time and effort has gone into the re-creation of this gem. Today my youngest son and I will be painting the half story bedroom walls and ceilings and some of the trim. Getting back together with Jeff and doing some planning about finish surfaces and how to manage the final phases....can't believe we're heading into the home stretch now....maybe we'll have our first Thanksgiving feast in the new HU!
Enjoy the last part of your summer as we get ready for the beautiful fall weather.....
