On December 1, 2008, among national economic uncertainty and no shortage of personal, internal turmoil, we closed the sale on a lonely, vacant, 1903 Queen Anne Victorian house. Our intent is to renovate this grand neglected lady into our dream home. With some skills, a truckload of tools, a “sort of” plan, a bunch of confidence, and a limited budget another of our life adventures begins. Follow along. It’s bound to be interesting…
A new adventure by the author of the award-winning Life Is a Road book series.
Sunday was some gorgeous weather…so I spent a chunk of it working on the south side of the Old Vic…we took the old “awning” (term used very loosely) down before the roof job but that had made a mess of the eaves and years of…I don’t know…*weirdness* on the screened in porch need to be undone.
Buttoning up the eaves, and pulling extra/unneeded screws and nails that were stuck all over the side of the house took a few hours.
Some trim, some paint, and some new screens will make things look a whole lot better.
The picture is all the superfluous nails/screws I pulled out of about a 24-foot long section of the side of the Old Vic…
Thanks for reading!
