your place looks to be in pretty good shape. you might have a couple of surfaces to freshen a bit, but for the most part, it looks like furniture choices are the toughest thing on your plate.

good luck

You're right...I'm jealous of all the glass and the outdoors you have in SoCal. Can't have that around here since it actually gets cold, but we don't need to hack up our houses to try to install an AC system!
Our heat bill can reach $450 a month for 3-4 months of the year unless the fireplaces run. As soon as I install a hydronic heat exchanger in the flue, I'll be able to get all that wasted heat into the rest of the house.


That patio on your Scholz is breathtaking to say the least. I always wanted to do something similar here. Don't ever get rid of those lighting fixtures either!

Next time I'm passing through Kettering, plan on me asking to stop by and see it in person.

I will post some new picts soon, we are taking up the floor in the dining room and kitchen currently. We have decided on Black VCT btw.

How many bedrooms is your CC? Did you choose a hydronic heat exchanger for the flue yet?

consider carrying your indoor beam color outdoors.

The great room beams look like they are wrapped in hardwood faced ply. But I still think matching the color outside would be a good illusion.

Added a couple pictures with the new outside color scheme. I also just finished stripping and staining the exterior part of the wood beams (which were painted). I haven't taken a picture of them finished yet (only stripped), but they turned out great. I used a combination of Soy Gel and a lot of sanding to get the old paint stripped. Then I used a coating for doors and windows made by Sikkens to color and protect them for the years to come. I will add some pictures showing them finished soon!

Looks great with the beams matching inside to out...what Sikkens product did you use?

Thank You.....it was a lot of work. The Sikkens product was called Cetol® Door & Window. It turned out kinda satin which is what I was looking for and I figured if it could handle the wear and tear on a door, it should work very well on my beams. I did have to use 2 colors to achieve the reddish undertone. ***

Thank you, it has been a great home to live in the last 5 years and the utility bills surprisingly low for Ohio. About 1/2 the average home in my area according to my utility company!
