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.

We'll be building our own kitchen cabinets, eventually hope to build our own doors, make doing the place up with beautiful wooden fixtures our hobby.

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

Hi Dan, and welcome to Home Refurbers.

So you bought in Petaluma. How do you like it so far? It sounds like you have lots of work ahead of you to make the house of your dreams.

Bill, so far we’re loving it. We just had an “invite all the neighbors over” party and had a grand ol’ time, last night we went to an underground (literally) concert with Steve Seskin (whose songs you’ve almost certainly heard), the bicycling is awesome.

And the house is great because there’s very little that we must do, but a lot that we want to do. I’ve started to work on milling our reclaimed mahogany for the cabinet doors and baseboards, hoping that we’ll be able to hang the new front door and start in on the baseboards soon, and I’m working on a few things for the back yard.

Always something more interesting to do than, for instance, watch TV, but no emergency projects on the list.
