Bought a 1947 cottage in southwest Petaluma (about 45 minutes north of San Francisco) in January of 2008, our projects started by ripping out the carpets to reveal the gorgeous white oak floors. We never want to move again, so we're slowly turning this place into the home we want to spend the rest of our lives in.

I'm also slightly active over at LumberJocks, along with my own extensive web presence.

Among the amusements of having the wall around the tub out, this instance where someone missed the stud for an entire row up the button board. I have done this once or twice, but never for the whole damned row, and especially never where I was dri...
