I'm really excited about this weeks theme. I have a strong passion for old houses and remodeling. I watch "This Old House" and "HGTV" like a a soap addict. In fact I have my daughter hooked. We watch HGTV and boo and hiss the bad remodels and applaud the jobs well done. The pictures below are of a home we spent over 5 years restoring back to its original luster. This house contains a lot of our blood, sweat and tears. Before we came along, it had been horribly neglected. It had been through some frightening remodels, especially in the 60's and 70's. It had been turned into a boarding house and had 10 bedrooms when we purchased it. It sat on the market for years. No one dared take on this project. Call it vision or stupidity, but we saw the potential of this 1909 victorian. Due to its neglect, almost everything is new, inside and out, but we did our best to keep the original charm. During the remodels we found a lot of old newspapers in the walls. We left a few and added our own time capsules before the finishing touches. We have since sold this home, and moved on to another old house remodel, which I am also quite proud of. The itch is starting again, so we'lll see what is in store for us next.
