Where have we been?

Sunday, August 23rd, 2009

I know we’ve been incommunicado for over a year now, but it’s because we’ve been crazy busy planning for an addition to the Old Man along with a restoration of the existing part of the house (consisting mainly of fixing the plaster and stripping/refinishing the woodwork). Well, we actually started work in the beginning of July after spending a year working with our architect on the exact plans of the addition (featuring a big new kitchen!).

Anyway, we probably spent the most time trying to find the right contractor after reading the horrifying saga that the folks over at Casa Decrepit had with Willson/Bailey. We were scared to death to wind up with another Scott Bailey! Well, we think we found the right contractor and now we’re about six weeks in and couldn’t be happier with how things are going. I’ll likely publish the occasional picture here of what’s going on, but don’t have time to blog a whole lot as we need to strip the woodwork!
