A Cavalcade of Pictures!

Better late than never.  I am backfilling photos on my last few posts, which were tragically short on anything other than text.  So, even if no one is reading this blog, at least we will have a visual record of what we have done on the house over the past ten years.  This batch covers the recently completed work in the living room, entry hall and den.  I am throwing in a few pictures of reproduction lighting fixtures that we have installed over the past ten years for good measure.

Remember, if you like it then you shoulda put a comment on it . . .

Just came across the blog and like what i see so far, love old houses, i'm restoring an 1803 colonial cottage in winsted, ct. all by my lonesome. acolonialcottage.blogspot.com ...I like it so i'm gonna put a restoration on it! Not a beautiful old saltbox like yours but it'll be nice when i'm done. On a nice flat lot in the woods within walking distance of highland lake, i love it. Take care & thanks for sharing your old house with us.
