I found Mark's book and immediately realized I was on to something. After reading this book (and some others) I concluded that this was where I needed to focus.

Set the antique mantel by attaching nailers to the brick and finish nailing the mantel sides to them. Worked well. This allowed me to get nearly all of the remaining wainscot up. Just need to scribe a piece on each side of the mantel to fit around a crown molding section as you can see from the photo. Sandra has continued to finish paint the trim, finishing the existing trim in the dining room, the crown in the hall and the in the living room and working on the LR windows.


Todd finished the last door frame yesterday. I've set all the originals except for the last one, and showed Todd how it's done. The mission, if he accepts it, is to set the last one and trim it out while I'm out of town the rest of the week.

Girls are going over granite choices, complicated by the large size of the island and available slab sizes.

I sent off drawings for the three showers worth of glass this morning and was stunned by the one quote that I received so far. A full 50% more than I expected. And I thought I would have gotten some discount over 3x a single unit price. I'll wait for the others to come back. I want to buy locally, but at this price, I fully expect the online quotes to easily beat.

Took in the five original doors that haven't been stripped. (we tested one a couple months ago). They should be back in a week. $100 each. to have stripped, but less than 1/2 price of new, and have the charm of original house.

Was hoping that the cabinet order would go in by now, but there continues to be small revisions. Hopefully yet this week.

DR mantle set with wainscot up.
Original front window with finish trim. This window was a filthy mess before we started. Had to reconstruct the sill and side frame pieces. It is not operable as we decided not to reset the weights. All of the new windows do open and will provide any ventilation needed.
