Old House Chronicles: The Window Treatment

The new windows are IN! Obsidian (aka Black) was definitely the correct choice. IN. LOVE. We are now at the point where Old House begins to be put back together instead of being torn apart so I am feeling good about this!


I am still not thrilled about my brown roof and I think it just has to be changed to black. Dying inside over this. I think its decision time. Black roof. Moving on.

Old House Chronicles: Meltdown Edition

Old House is currently adorned with an enormous pile of dirt, complete with various plumbing pipes and old shingles sticking out at all angles. This is the point in the construction/renovation process where every homeowner has a meltdown to some degree. I thought I would be different, seeing as I handle these projects just like this all of the time. Turns out I’m not different. I may actually be worse than most! Being the OCD person that I am,  I had a total meltdown over the huge pile of dirt with pipes and shingles sticking out. Speaking of shingles… I hesitate to even mention this but here goes. See my lovely new brown roof in the background. Operative word… BROWN. I thought I was getting a black roof to match my wonderful new windows and doors (which I hear are going in this weekend!). I take the brunt of the blame here.Total miscommunication on my part. I wisely said to my builder “please match the existing roof.” To me, this meant a BLACK roof, just like was on the house when I bought it, only brand spankin’ new. To my builder it meant “match the roof as it looked when it was installed 30 years ago before all of the brown part washed away and exposed all of the black part beneath it.” Hence, brown roof. Resolution to this issue to come…

Old House Chronicles: Slow But Steady

Seems that the tag line for Old House will turn out to be “slow but steady”. The weather has not been friendly lately and has been holding up our big plans for progress. Despite our rainy start to the week, much of the framing has been completed! Supposedly, electrical will begin next week. Without the roof installed at this point, I can’t even imagine installing wiring. I have been assured that is the case so I should have an electrifying (wow – painful to write but I just can’t help myself) report for next week!
