That’s been a while, again.. We’re still here and keep working on things but really we’re down to details and progress is pretty slow. We got baseboard and more trim, all fir and all of it needing a few coats of Benite and polyurethane so it takes a bit of time to get it ready. We also built our garden boxes to start growing our own veggies, wish us luck on that one.. Otherwise, we’re slowly working on details like lighting, shelving and other things that make a house a home 🙂
We’re also making sure to find time to enjoy the spring weather and sunsets in nearby Golden Gardens!
On to pictures, all taken with our 35mm manual focus “oldie” lens, enjoy!
Wow, over a month with no posting, guess we were hit with some renovation fatigue.. We didn’t do that much over the Holidays and slowly started picking things up again in January. Mostly finishing trim, cleaning up, unpacking, organizing and cleaning up some more.. Continue reading

Well, it looks like we’re not going to keep up on our weekly updates so this will be a (quick) summary of the activities of the past 10 days or so. First and foremost, we have completed insulation which only took a day and have started sheetrock! Continue reading
The big news this week is that the windows arrived! A lot more is going on in a mad dash to get ready for framing inspection, insulation and sheetrock. This could turn into a long post… Continue reading
Whew, time flies when you’re keeping busy! A lot has happened since our last posts, but in all honesty there is not a lot that makes for interesting visual progress.. As we mentioned in our previous post, Mike is spending a good amount of time trying to line up the perfectly level and plane new frames with the not-so-perfect existing structure. Without going into too much detail, a lot of it ultimately comes down to, lots of shimming, compromising, a little give and take, and that is something we expected with a house of this age, it’s “quirky” 🙂
