It never ends with this stuff....I completely lost my battle with the developer building RIGHT ACROSS the street from me. He's subdiving 1 RA-1 lot into 3 R1-1 lots. I'm sure the city is taking payoffs. I'll have the same ugliness staring me in the face soon too, but even worse is the construction t...

OR the evening of Wednesday, Dec 7. ...Thoughts or preferences? Once decided, I will post on the *events* board - make it open to al...

In Paul Schweikher's 1937 Illinois home and studio, made entirely of redwood, he lined his shower walls and floor with it. It was designed to be bare wood, and except for a few spots where someone had placed a sealer on it and moisture could not escape, it still looks great after almost 70 years of...

Yes, we thought of those lights as "earrings" too, but, at night they really give the house a nice warm glow.

If they were hung at different heights, I think they would look strange.

New Front porch landscaping

Hey, A while back I was asking for ideas for re-doing the front porch / entry. It was unanimous(sp?) that I should just lose the brick planters... Well I did and here are the results. I continued the Japanse theme from the rest of the front landscaping... Before http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y39/...
