That's a lot of house - I wonder what condition that turquoise oven is in under the white paint?

You'll have fun with the reset of the restovation though it's a big project. Try to take it in small bites.

Ikea slats are spaced onebyfours about 1/2" apart along the whole gap (larger beds are divided into two rows of slats - I can't see the slats not supporting any springs, so I'd say the "matress people" were laying on a load of crapola (as mentioned in much nicer terms above). I've act...

Looks good Stephen, but I think the bed's going to have an issue with sagging along the side edge and extended corner, especially as your brother gets in/out of bed over time. You're basically holding up a third of the mattress with the ends of 3 twobyfours (the one running length-wise isn't really ...

If you decide to strip the paint and refinish, make sure you do some sample areas first. Many times the beams and ceiling are painted because of water intrusion - they may have been natural or stained wood originally, but roof leaks over the years and the accompanying algae, fungi and mildew have pe...

The soffit vent is commonly used here and it's really not noticeable in person. It doesn't bother me at all and helps circulate some much needed air in the space between roof and ceiling (no attic on this building - the ceilings are vaulted in all the rooms).

I'm actually not adjusting the images, other than correcting for light in some cases (especially the interior shots - why there's more noise). I pull the blacks all the way down then up the mids and highs to reduce shadows - I also lighten up the images more than I normally would for print - many mo...

Not to get too off-subject, but have you thought about moving the doggy door into the wall? It would improve the "drama" of your door, no matter what color you choose (or is it going away completely?).

It's not a Maloof - arms and rockers are wrong - I believe someone mentioned it was a knock-off - still well done, even if the proportions are questionable. It was very comfortable.

Hey Rob,

Try something simple like a solid background color with circles in complimentary colors - stuff like that is easy and doesn't take a lot of time or effort.
