Our Exterior Renovation Update

This past weekend we were able to make a significant progress on the house!  The siding on the North side was removed and we finished painting on the street side.  Installing the siding and replacing the gable are next on our "to do" list.

Here is an updated view. (I am still casting the remaining swags and we are waiting for the 1st floor master copy onlay to arrive).

And here is a new shot of the front of the house (still missing the 2nd floor railing and new brick paint).

Victorian ceiling - finally finished!

I can't even tell you how happy I am that the ceiling is done. I promised myself that I will never, EVER come up with any more ideas like this one! Here are before and after shots.

The gold pattern has a lot of shine when the light changes during the day.
