That's awesome Douglas. Definitely keep us updated. You're not living there while all this shit is going on, are you?

It was a gift, and we also circulate what's hanging from our collection. That one is recent, which is also why it isn't framed yet. I need to get around to doing that.

I've heard that there is a certain private chef who is also a master framer.

Nice start, Douglas. Are you replacing the turned spindles on the second floor railing with the squared off ones?

Wow, lefty. That's an eye for detail. Actually, both the turned ones and the square ones are original. Each wall of railing has a set of the turned ones in the middle, with squared ones on the sides. We are not changing them at all; just leaving it all as-is. I didn't love the turned ones at first myself, but they're original and part of the quirky charm of the place, and they don't bug me anymore.

Really? Surprised to hear that as they look like a fix and don't fit the house.

You just saved a few grand.

Glad to see an update on the place, Douglas. I noticed a shot of the driveway. The stones appear secure.
