    Hi Folks,

    I am pretty sure that the renovating is done... some brickwork on the front of the house sometime soon, but the interior is done! I thought you'd like to see our finished job!

    Our new screen door to keep the flies out and let the breezes in!

    The fireplace WAS 16 feet long. Our renovator, took it down, lowered the propane insert and rebuilt it like this!

    Looks fabulous! I'll bet you're glad all that work is done and you can start actually living in your house again instead of living around the construction!

    Beautiful built-ins, I love your kitchen cabinets. The finished job is quite pleasing itsn't it? Did you do the work yourself?

    Mamagus, I just love everything. I especially love the picture you took from the dining room. It shows the beauty of both rooms, plus you have such fantastic natural light coming in...my house is way too dark, but the design doesn't allow for much difference.
    I love your cabinets, and the stained glass door that you did. That is so pretty. Reno's are so exciting and fun. We are finishing up the carpentry part of our living room project. I am now going to have a lot of sewing to do, after I paint the last wall, and get mirror and pictures up.
    Thanks so much for including us in on your projects, I love seeing these things. Have fun with that new album cabinet. I always get so inspired after getting more organized. :D

    I love your cabinets! Your kitchen is delightful--makes me want to sit right down and have some coffee.

    Thanks folks! We decided when I retired last year that this house will be our retirement place so we wanted to make it as pleasant as possible! Then when we started one thing followed another and another... and here we are 6 months later... almost done. Our renovator works full time at a hardware store so he could only work a couple of days each week, but he did everything except the cabinets. Plumbing, electrical, ceramic tiles, flooring, walls, plaster, painted, masonry... what a great man to have doing a renovation. He's worth twice what we paid him!

    I am making his wife a quilt to thank her for giving him to us for such a long time! I'll post a pic when I get it done!
