Wow! I've just looked through your album. Thats an amazing amount of work that you have done on that old house. The transformation is amazing. How many rooms are left?

RE: Room Six Done!


Well, downstairs there is a South parlor, kitchen, bathroom, entry hall with stairs and the cellar stairway that has a mini panty off the kitchen.
Upstairs there's the master bath, laundry room, back stairs to kitchen and a large hall area the bedrooms open onto. Then there is the barn, basement, new deck, entry stairs at East end of house and a small entry stoop into the house.

We have a professional house painter for the outside so he will take care of those areas outside. We're doing all the insides.
We are going to recycle bricks from an old chimney into a couple of patio areas. That's about all that is left!

Holy crap, what a great house! You just finished room five a few days ago. Slow down, you're putting me to shame.

RE: Room Six Done!

No kidding, you must have unbelievable energy?

What is the Mexican Prison?

RE: Room Six Done!

Thanks for looking!

We've been going great guns for several weeks now and the rooms are getting done fast!

The plumbers and electricians will be there this week--I hope and that will finish a few more rooms including the ex Mexican Prison which is now a laundry room. Our neighbor nick named it that because when we bought the place that was a very scary room. It is off the winder stairs that go to the kitchen and across from the master bedroom. It had plaster walls that were never painted with large cracks--the plaster was very hard to remove! And a single drop light hanging from the ceiling with a red light bulb in it and it, no window but a large closet, mop boards and a wood floor that looked well used.

Bless all those benighted former owners who preserved your wonderful floors under layers of "improvements". Eighteen inch pine is rare. Very nice job!
