Our Home

In July 2002, we purchased a new home.  The decision to change houses came relatively quickly -- we had actively pursued a major addition to our previous home for most of a year.  However, in the end, we decided moving made more sense, and we found this home quickly and liked it.

We really liked the lot the home was on, and the layout and features of the house itself.  All the major elements were in good shape.  But you might say that we liked the "potential" of the yard and home better than the actual condition.  When we took over the house, much of the foliage in the yard was overgrown, and much of the interior decorating of the house, to put it politely, didn't match our tastes.  We have been working on many repairs and improvements, inside and out, ever since we took over the house, and have been documenting some of the changes we've made in the past few years, and most certainly will continue to make in the coming years.

Completed rails after finishingThe finished view, from the top! We used a Minwax stain finish, which matched the color of our floors and related trim. Then we installed three coats of Minwax rub-on polyurethane. This was the first time we used rub-on poly, and we loved it. It was a joy to work with, especially with so many hard-to-reach surfaces to cover.
