This website was created to document the restoration of our Victorian home. We purchased the house in December 2000. The picture above shows what the house looked like when we obtained it.  I try to take a photo of the house from the same position each November or December to catalog the changes for the previous year. To view the current state of the restoration and the full archive, click here.

Our Restoration Process

Since we are doing a total restoration/renovation, and doing 99.9999% of the work ourselves, I take a lot of pictures of the process. This site is the collection of some of those pictures. We will also try to describe in detail how we accomplished some of the processes. Hopefully, some of this information may be of help to others who are restoring old houses as well.

This New Site

This new site is set up differently (and hopefully better) than the old site was.  We have decided to go ahead and make this new site live, even though it’s missing some of the info that the old site had.  Because of the new site’s format, we went back to the beginning of the restoration (2001) and started there.  I finally got all caught back up, and I feel that this now creates a much more complete indexing of the actual restoration.  Also, just a reminder… visitors can now leave comments/questions specific to each project.  We look forward to hearing from you!

Spring Cleaning Time!

It’s that time of year, so lots of new bargains have been added to the Rummage Sale page.  Check them out before they are gone!

Thank you for your support, and we hope you enjoy the new site!
