Yes.  I have heard your requests for more photos of the house.  While it is almost impossible for me to put up photos of every corner in every room all at once, I can update photos in a series of posts. Consider this part 1 of……oh, I have no idea.  A lot.

    Hey! If you ever need a hand…just ask…I just might be available…I am free of kids every day during school hours and I am used to helping Vince with projects all the time! :). I’m also good at being a “surgical nurse” (which means I pretty much stand there and wait to hand you the tool you need when you need it!)!!! 🙂

    So exciting and a bit envious of this adventure you both have undertaken. It will be so beautiful when done. Any ideas of having it become a B&B?

    Thank you for sharing this with others! I look forward to all of your post.

    Sincerely Gerry Ann

      Thank you! We aren’t personally planning on it being a B&B for us (at this point…I guess things could change:). But we are going to be strategic with our floor plan and keep that in mind.

    Thanks for the pics. So excited to watch the progress. Available hands if needed feel free to contact me. Attempted a historic renovation purchase last fall. It fell through so just wait for another project to surface in the meantime. Sucker for an old beauty in need of attention.

    i would love the chance to help with this house, i love old homes and to spend time in this house to help you repair and paint and what not would be a pleasure for me. I don’t know how to do too much but i can paint and sand drywll after the putty dries and cleaning i am a champ. I will be coming back to town in a couple weeks from Vegas for good and if you need an extra hand , i would be honored to help.

    I have did this type of work my whole life. I”M so excited for you. Time will get this done for you. The house is breathtaking. It will be a lifetime commitment, but it will become a dream come true. Don’t rush anything, take your time.
