We knew that our home was pre-Civil War, but not much more. Not too many stories have presented themselves, and there has been no time to conduct research. After a few weeks of hard, hard work (3600 square feet of home is now gutted), this gem revealed itself. It was behind the cellar door, just waiting to be found. I wish that I had been there to see the look on Rusty’s face. This project is so near and dear to his heart, and he is working at this from early morning until dark, then working at/for his consulting business for a few more hours. Add to that the fact that he will be away from home for months seeing this project through deconstruction and then restoration, and you get a picture of just how dedicated he is to fulfilling his dream.
Some people shake their heads and think he is crazy to tackle this project. He is not, and we will have plenty of room for them to come visit and see that the proof will be in the pudding! Room reservations anyone? *You can go on the wait list, nothing available quite yet…
One thought on “We Have a Birthday!”
We’ve been told that this sign does not actually belong to this house. Makes sense, since the renovation dates do not match the style of the renovations. We have some investigating to do.
