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.

And then we got to that mysterious box in the corner: The lower part of the chimney. We knocked the plaster and button board off, revealed a cement base and a metal chimney. Opening the access hatch on the base showed a residue that suggested at s...
We have long been expecting to remodel the kitchen. Shortly after we moved in, over 5 years ago, we bought a couple of hundred board feet of maple to be our cabinets. Later that year I got a hold of a bunch of Peruvian mahogany, and I built some c...
I grew up in an area about 3 hours north of New York City, and a lot of well-to-do New Yorkers had weekend homes in our rural area. My family lived in a farmhouse built in 1790 that lacked… well… there may have been plumbing in it, but...
Over this Christmas break, Charlene said “why don’t we start replacing the knob and tube with those two lights”. We did, and then started on the next light, and in the process of tearing that apart at midnight I said “screw...
