New house

Wednesday, January 05, 2011

It's a 1904, with a ton of molding, and ornate stuff everywhere. It has taken over 30 hours to paint ONE room- with some touch ups still needed. It's.... going to be beautiful. All the nails pulled, all the patching done, all the ceilings painted, but now that it is full of STUFF--- the walls take longer. Meanwhile, the contractors come to tear out windows and put in new windows, and say 'oh, move all this, clear all that', which makes finding the tools and stuff harder. Give me a month. One more month and it will be gorgeous. Dang, it's taking longer as I get older, but having all this molding and beams and $hit takes time too.

    Such a special thing, to craft a home precisely to one's liking...! Just like we attempt to do with our bodies! :-)

    This is absolutely gorgeous! I feel good knowing you're living in a cozy place you have fixed up for yourself.
