A blog about the restoration, remodel and renovation of a 1929 Chicago-style brick bungalow

Taking One Last Look

I can scarcely believe it, and I don’t want to jinx it, but it appears that we are about to reach a pretty big milestone in the attic renovation, after three years: DOORS.

The carpenter is coming bright and early in the morning. He has 5 doors to install including the closets along with 3 windows to trim. I’m not sure how long it’ll take him but I can’t tell you how excited I am that I won’t have to look at this much longer:

Our master bedroom doorway

Master bedroom window, taped off after staining and applying sanding sealer coat.

Master bathroom. Yes, we have had NO DOOR on our bathroom for three years. Luckily it’s just the two of us in the house, and obviously we’re not very (or at all) modest with each other!

My studio window, also taped off after staining and varnishing.

Yippee!! That is all.
