Okay, I have been meaning to do this for a long time. I have gleaned so much from reading other house blogs and just want to share our project and hopefully get (and give) some feedback on the pride and pitfalls of renovating an old house. Our house is a 1903 American Foursquare that was purchased with the intent of making the first floor our offices (my husband owns and runs a real estate appraisal company) and eventually turning the second and third floors into rental units for offices or tenants, or us. As I write this my hands are cut from scraping stair risers and I am getting just a tish burned out on painting, tiling, grouting, trash hauling and a lot of other unpleasant plebian tasks. I now am taking Halloween night off to finally create a blog where I hopefully can connect with others in our situation. Hope to talk to you all soon. Halloween is scary?...Try renovating a house!
