Lenore, you've done a great job, thanks for sharing ... a decade's work, right down to the green shed roof, and all it's experiences!

I have been contemplating painting the dark wood cabinets a mustard color and changing the laminated counters to soap stone, blue stone, zinc or copper for my 1870's clapboard farm house kitchen.... do you have any recommendations?

I really loved seeing your lovely home. It's warm and inviting with innovative storage ideas, the colors and textures remind me of the natural world coming into the interior and I really like that. The attic space is awesome. Same color blue that my daughter chose for her new bedroom. The entrance is so inviting with those yellow benches!! Thanks for sharing your home!

The doors on the shed are class. They look straight out of the Middle Ages. Love the old world look of it.
