We're at the start of a remodeling project (Old Church built in 1875, with an attached hall built in 1932). Discovering these little architectural details along the way is very cool! And we know exactly what you mean about the job being bigger than what you thought. LOL. Behind the would paneling, behind the plaster, behind the lathe, behind the clabboarding, there is some really nice brick work!


Its great to see that you survived and ended up with a truly beautiful space!

I just found this article. I didn't realize you were designers until I read your bio on one of the comments. (Pfhew)... I was worried all of us lay people were supposed to have design skills of this caliber! Your home is absolutely lovely. I hope you are still enjoying every aspect of it
