JUST A FEW OF THE FOLKS THAT MADE LAST WEEK POSSIBLE

Look at this picture of lance covered in dust from sanding ceilings. He looks like a homeless 80-year-old drinking a smoothy. Ha!

 Here's a shot of the newly sanded floors. Remember that what you are looking at used to be 4 rooms so there was a lot of patch and repair that had to happen with these floors. These guys are such masters at what they do!

Here are two shots of the basket-woven corners before sanding and after sanding. Nice!

 

WALL/TRIM CHOICES FOR MAIN LIVING AREAS

 We decided on BM Stonington Gray for the walls and a darker and very handsome Coventry Gray for the Wainscoting and trim throughout the living room, dining room and hallway.

Archeology

 Here's another uncovered piece of structure from the original building of the house in 1925 with the carpenter's full name. So cool. Wish he could see it now.
