The other house you speak of is still there, I always thought it was kinda neat. Its on Rockwell lane I believe on sunset hill - thats the stop light on Ward Parkway if your heading from the south towards the plaza. I love that stool - I totally agree with you Howard Roark would burn that puppy down!

SDR-
Is there another page in the book "Before You Buy a House, 'Operation Trade Secrets House.'" -- that shows a perspective drawing of the trades secret home?

Fireslate Counter install

We had the help of M_R_US, Jerad, Steve,Bob & Scoot to install these fireslate counters... Weight similar to corian. Modernist barn raising like experience.. w/ many cooks in the kitchen = very nice install...

Niiice. . .! Congrats to all. I like the Fireslate return-to-the-floor-as-end-panel. Now you're considering no backsplashes, I bet ! :wink: Either way, it looks (and will perform) just great. It'll be darker after being sealed and oiled, of course.

SDR :cheers: :cheers:

Thanks SDR-
Final add will be anod. alum. windows & a glass tile backsplash from
http://www.interstyle.ca/products/glass ... olors.html

in the color slates...

SDR feels like we know you in person. One day maybe we all can meet up & take you out to the flint hills to build a retirement hut with all those joinery skills you have...

I think after all this remodel stuff has ended we should take a break at this place. Super serene.. Swiss spa resort w/ interesting lighting...

We have been super busy with a new family addition lately (baby 1.5 month old girl named Ria). But thought it would be a nice break to keep lotta living posted on our progress w/ the house...

last photo in the set is one soon to be installed anodized aluminum slider window for the kitchen. Slowly we are replacing all of the vinyl windows w/ anodized alum.



We are still working on those 50 year old cork floors.

Got to hang the birch laundry closet doors over the weekend. The color sort of matches the garage door but I'm sure the sun will kick in & darken the doors a bit..

Also couple weeks ago the original owners of the home came by & brought by a few photos that I can post later.

Chock full of period herman miller & knoll furniture...

They were the coolest 80+ year old couple on the planet.

She even liked our Nick Cave show poster...

Here are some more photos:
