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....

My inspiration 3 Feb 36 - 16 Nov 10
She didn't get to see it with her eyes, but clearly she's there now. Greatly loved and missed. Strong, brave, loving, kind, beautiful, vibrant. My mom.
Master bedroom, looking towards closet and sitting room. Flooring being completed now throughout the house. Except in the dining room where we are using antique salvaged oak, the new flooring is from Carlisle Wood Floors, hickory, random wide plank, with knots, and will have a natural tung oil finish when completed. HVAC is completed and the gas tank on site.
Master bathroom shower, mostly tiled now with travertine, with Japanese soaking tub framed sitting under the window.
Kitchen, looking towards pantry, door to dining room (right) and door to sunroom (left). Alcove behind door to sunroom where refrigerator will go.
Standing in the sitting room, master bathroom doorway to the left, walk-in closet in the middle, passage to the master bedroom on the right.
The new front landscape design, the original path will be preserved but lifted and moved to the right a little, patio will be completed with antique cobblestones. The flower beds will contain mostly roses and other flowers that will be fun to cut and bring indoors, mostly fragrant. My digging has been a great release, took several days to outline the beds and remove the sod.
The wind is everywhere and great flocks of birds appear to play with it.
Make sure you tell the special people in your life every day, in some way, how much you love them.
