A lil summer turned fall project..

As you all can see, my man loves a ladder..And his Ridgid..AND the smell of fresh beautiful cedar shingles..

I originally thought, yes I said THOUGHT we would paint the house this summer..But, ohhhh, no..Not MY husband..He prefers a hammer to a paint brush any day of the week. Hammer + Husband = projecto perfecto..

Did we just reside? No, not JUST..we reconfigured our entryway, to the way it was when it was built, added two new beautiful larger windows and a gorgeous 8 ft all glass door. IT IS GORGEOUS..

One day I had a date with some very vintage corbels and the belt sander..They were given to us by our great neighbor next door. How did she know they would work so perfectly into the project? Not sure, but they are installed now, and yes, they look like they have always been there.

My fine work..

this gigantic school house light was hanging in the Ballroom at Grand Heron..The electrical and all the metal, including the beautiful chain have had some new life breathed into them and Steve added a dimmer switch, now at night its like we have a full moon at our door..

We are doing this project in thirds..since we are not rich..(in money) but other ways we are billionaires..
Here is one of our billions, a great assistant..too!!

Just a little something from Judy said...

You are billionaires in the true sense. The way the two of you work and transform is totally impressive. The transformation is beautiful! I am so happy that you took the pictures and shared the documenting of this project.
