Progress by the end of 2008

Hours to go of 2008 and here is a record of the latest state of play. Still no reliable electricity (it flickers) or hot water (boiler is caput), and bathrooms await future attention and money, but the hardwood floors are all in except for the dining room and a couple of rooms are kinda done.

Autumn arrives


The Highwood Hills/S. Paul fixer-upper known as Prestonia (it's about the size of a small Balkan country) will be chronicled here. Expect some photos from months of back-breaking, finger-numbing, lung-coating labors to make it habitable. If we can keep the wolf from the door it may all be worth it some day.
