Our love for old houses makes this project— completed years ago— one of our all-time favorites.  The 1908 Shuey House in the U District had suffered some ill-conceived remodeling along the way, having been converted into a rooming house during the depression.  The worst part involved the enclosure of its second story porches.  We got to have a hand in helping the homeowners return it to its former glory. (Check out subsequent photos for the Seattle Times article to see the “before,” with the porches enclosed, Caroline T. Swope’s _Classic Houses of Seattle_ for the original.) Kudos to the homeowners for restoring this landmark building, which we understand some portion of which is now available as a vacation rental.

I knew a man that was 102 years old, and still drove and was in fine shape. At dinner he ate his dessert first. At that age he wasn’t sure he’d make it to dessert. These 3 1/4 inch heart pine floors are 106 years old, and the trees much older than that! They deserve the finest sanding we can provide, and a @bona_pro woodline gloss finish for dessert, or final coat. #bona sanders, dust containment, abrasives, and finishes supplied at @floridahardwoodfloorsupplies. Find us on Houzz to see the rest of this project. It is definitely one of my favorites. This was taken during gasparilla, and in the full width picture you can see the pirate flag and the beautiful stairs as well. This was also taken years after we finished the project. The floors looks as great as the day we left.

When bringing a home “back” to a place in time, materials are an important consideration. If a material isn’t readily available, we do the research to find it. If it's unattainable, we make a determination about the best solution. In either case, we go beyond the givens. This often means fabricating our own materials and even the tools needed to work with them. #FVBI

At the center of an old Georgia town stands this beautiful home, a shell of what it once was when I stopped to photograph nearly 3 years ago.
.
It was once the home of Mr. and Mrs. Greer. She was a 5th grade school teacher and lived here up until the late 1990’s.

I’m happy to share that in the past year, it has been purchased and updates have begun! Hopefully I’ll have an after picture to share with you all soon!

**Alexandria History Project- if you have any knowledge of this family, photos, or other information, please let me know"

Researching the Lucas-Heller family:

They were a Jewish family from Louisiana with roots back through New York and then to Austria, Russia, and more. 
Isaac Lucas and his wife Fannie Simon Lucas had 3 children: twins William and Miriam and youngest son Sydney. 
William went on to become an important Internal Revenue Service agent who worked across the state of Louisiana and who eventually settled in Louisiana. 
Miriam married an immigrant from Austria, Samuel Heller, who was a traveling salesman of a variety of companies including Parker Brothers, a ladieswear company, a cutlery and jewelry company, and more. 
Samuel and Miriam had daughter Adelaide Lucas Heller who lived her childhood and most of her adulthood in this home.  Adelaide attended Bolton High School and the University of Texas before returning home to teach at Tioga High School .

At least there was no way to mess this kitchen up further.  Sad little guy.  But knocking down 2 walls,  gutting the mad floor plan and reconfiguring is going to make a world of difference.

Just got done with my first University submission! Yaay!

Picked a couple of new friends this weekend and started Man's search for meaning by Viktor Frankl. So far sooooo good. This book is suggested in A whole New Mind by Daniel Pink (the review of which is on the BLOG) and talks about first hand experiences at the concentration camps in Nazi Germany. But, it's not just history. It's a piercing narration of finding meaning in life even after life's given up on you.

Watch my story for reads from the book. Also, am I supposed to reference this shit out? 😒 #hatereferencing 
How was your weekend lovers?

City of Kawartha Lakes City Hall, previously named Victoria County Court House. This impressive Italianate court house was built 1862-1863. We supplied our North Country Unfading Black, 24” x12” x 1/4” for this restoration.

Before and afters are the best,  but before and durings are also motivational.  I have to caveat this post by saying 90% of the time I am pretty anti the open concept trend in historic houses.  However,  this house just had a kitchen and dining layout that made no sense at all, and retained zero amount of the home's original charm.  We're really excited about a how much progress we have seen in one week.  Bye bye carpet, hello my oak floor. Swipe through to see the progress.

Can't wait to give it a try & hope it lives up to my old Bertazzoni!  Can't believe the competitive pricing on this beauty.

Am using this fabulous vent hood alternative by @hammerandhandbuilds as my inspiration for the new kitchen.  Love the use of the vintage grate and the idea of in line blower instead of the typical range hood.

122 Chestnut Street, Danville VA. Old West End National Historic District. Currently offered for sale at $30,720. 
Designation:  The Henderson House.
Although Chestnut and Pine Streets were laid out fairly early, before the War Between the States, development of Chestnut Street did not really begin until some years later.  When H. W. Brown established his first florist shop on Green Street in 1883, there was only one house on Chestnut Street.  In the 1890s and early 1900s the street enjoyed a building boom which left it with the appearance it largely retains today. 
Originally identical to the steep-roofed Queen Anne style house next door, the raised, white-painted dwelling at 122 Chestnut Street was built, along with its neighbor, about 1890 by tobacconist James A. Henderson, whose own residence stood nearby on the present site of First Presbyterian Church. In a later remodeling the house was given a mansard roof and new front porch resulting in the present simple, but elegant design that contributes to the pleasing scale of the street.  The property has been owned by several persons since 1904.  They include druggist A. W. Jacob; Charles C. Pollok, a 
postal superintendent; and Harry Burns Trundle, an executive in the Register Publishing Company.  Nora Moseley Wiseman owned the house for 10 years until 1956 when this charming house became the home of Miss Eleanor Guerrant. whose attractive appointments use to good advantage the intimate qualities of its interior. this house was showcased during the 1979 Danville Historical Society's home tour. Since that date, the house has had a few occupants, and at times it was vacant. The city purchased the house in 2017  after a short stay by the last owners. Chestnut Street is seeing a resurgence with at least half of the homes on the street receiving  restoration. For further information on this home visit our website at oldwestendva.com. #oldwestendva

In 1918, a brawl shot out the mirror above the bar. Certainly not it's only battle wound, the bar also sports a deep gash from a rowdy patron's spur. -
