Bear with me while I enjoy how far we’ve come

I just uploaded a picture to Flickr that I took of the front of the house during the brief snowfall we had on New Year’s Day. While I was tagging it, I went back looking through old pictures of the front of the house and was absorbing just how much work has gone into it. I made a comment on the picture with this string of pictures, but wanted to share it here too:

Demolition has begun!

And the current pic is this:

Magic hour... and snow!

I’m so tickled. I love this house. I consider myself incredibly lucky to live here.

      Beautiful change! I know that people usually restore/renovate for personal pleasure, but the fact that you kept an old house from dilapidating like many folks in Nashville is fantastic. :)

      You two give me hope for all the work I want to do on my place. You’ve done a fantastic job!

      And I just love that picture of all the brickwork being gone from in under the front door. That’s excellent.

      I’m sorry I’m so late in commenting.

      You and Karsten have created a very warm and welcoming entry way. It’s a very lovely home.
