For all the years since we met (that’s 30), Rusty has had a dream of saving old buildings. Whether they are large, small or in-between, there is always a purpose that can be served by thinking restoration rather than demolition.
This blog will serve to document the dismantling and restoration of a wonderful, pre-Civil War home located in Middleburgh, NY…all 3,500 square feet of it…as well as the carriage barn of equal size. These buildings have survived multiple floods, and were scheduled to be demolished for a business development. Rusty’s plan will save both, and will serve to breath new life into them.
Since he’s relocated to the community where he grew up (Capital District) to do the actual work, I’ll be delivering the details of this evolving dream from our home (Western New York). We hope that you will join us and follow along with his progress. If you’re in the Middleburgh area, stop by and bring your hammer!
Until Next Time,
