Here are two completed projects. Both renovations of mysterious dwellings.
I think it is a little odd to have an outdoor front porch fireplace, but really the improvement isn't so different from the original.
I wonder what my mysterious VW man would think of this place now?
This next one though, was a total tear down and rebuild.
Remember the story?
Mother's body preserved so son could collect social security checks?
This new house is HUGE. It sits on a big chunk of land as well. I like that. I believe a big house should be surrounded by land. A house, like a picture, needs just the right frame.
Each soul needs his own nest to fit his or her personality. Personally, I prefer a small, manageable place, somewhere I can keep cozy and warm or open the windows and let a breeze riffle though, a place with lots of windows, a fireplace, and wood floors. A cabin sort of house.
