Fireplace reno complete. Masonry painted (the original roman brick was kind of an ugly tan color and they had painted the mortar joints black) and Mendota gas insert installed.

Next up, hardwoods throughout the main living areas, kitchen and master bedroom and a full kitchen gut and replacement.

That project should start mid-Feb. We have already purchased the new refrigerator and range (GE Cafe).

Ha! MY place? Nah. Your place, maybe.

I'm super excited for the next few months - we have the 4 sections of structural beam in the house getting wrapped in cedar, plus the new white oak floors and new kitchen. NOT super excited about living through the reno, however.

That's going to be amazing! Post up those photos when you get it done. Interior beams I'm guessing?

Our were stained dark brown but the ceiling is lined with T&G cedar so while I cry a little bit on the inside that the builders stained those structural beams dark, the contrast works well.

Yes, interior beams. Unfortunately, our structural beams are 1/2" structural steel sandwiched between pine 2x12s lag bolted through. Not pretty to look at, hence the wrapping.

No tongue and groove on our ceiling, sadly. Just boring old drywall sheets.

Pictures will definitely follow - I need to tear down some crown moulding and demo the drywall that 3 of the 4 beams are currently wrapped with.

Reminds me of an old joke. Did you hear about the lesbian construction company? They don't use any studs. Everything's tongue-and-groove.

Here's the big beam in the living room, complete with the furring strips still attached. Two walls (and the ceiling) still need to be painted after the crown was pulled down and the drywall repaired. Oh, and the door to the basement is getting replaced with a flat, solid core birch door in the next couple of weeks, too. All the doors and windows need to be re-trimmed with more correct style trim boards. Ugh.

Not sure how I feel about the three [filter] hanging on the wall.

Ooooo, it's going to look so good! You guys have all the MCM furniture and trimmings. I half way expect to see a shot of Don Draper lounging in your living-room with a glass of Scotch.

You have my chair you lucky SOB! I've been lusting over an Eames recliner for about 30 years. Is it the real deal or a knock-off? I met a woman at a party this past summer who works for a company that designs all of Amazon's interior spaces in Seattle. She can get the real deal Herman Miller version (black leather with walnut, of course) at cost. She offered to hook me up. It's still $4k. I just...can't...do...it... I found a knockoff on amazon that is advertised as full grain Italian leather. $1500. Before I could move on it, it disappeared. Damn.

We installed a Sputnik style lamp in the dining room. This shows a bit of the T&G ceiling and exposed beams.

$2500 difference - i'd rather buy the real thing... 30 years of lust and then it can be seen as your last chair. Bury yourself in it, haha.


Sputnik light is cool! I just got something similar installed above my tub.



we used a more lengthy bulb though
