I just thought I would comment on the recent lack of content on the blog. The truth is, I've been busy/lazy, and I haven't been working much on the house. I've been doing a few things, but nothing exciting.
I bought insulation (and installed 95% of it) for the garage, I installed plugs (11 of them) and new lights in the garage, as well as additional light switches. I've also bought the wood for the porch sills (Cedar) and all the 2x10s to rebuild the rough staircase (main staircase). But now that the weather is getting cool, I don't know if I'll have time to tackle those projects anytime soon. I was hoping to be able to buy all the drywall for the garage, and start putting it in, but I was off work again for a bit, and ran out of cash (I'm back to work now).
I also salvaged an absolutely beautiful antique door. It was an absolute brute to carry home, and it was literally just at the other end of my block. It's 1 3/4" thick, and made of solid BC Fir. It has 3 raised panels, and and the original wavy glass pane above, surrounded by decorative mouldings.
I'll be posting a photo of it as soon as I can scrape-up some free time. I also have some neighbourhood historic home updates/photos to share soon.
