If you’ve been reading along at least since January, you’ll know that we’ve been working off-and-on renovating our Summer House (aka Summer Kitchen circa 1817) and I’ve been taking pictures and sharing them.  Hubby took some pictures this weekend and asked me if I wanted to share those as well.  So here you get to see the Summer House Renovation through the hubby’s eyes lens (and his words on some of the pictures):

The latch-hook hangings were made by his late father.

Isn’t it turning out amazing?  I think so.


Link up if you like, and I’ll be able to stop by for a visit easily:

It is turning out great. I am so jealous. I want a studio separate from the house.

Cakewalk Sonar 8.5 looks a lot fancier than the Audition 3 I use to remaster audio files. Hubby’s a musician?

Wow, 5* remodel and a place for musicians. LOVE it and those gorgeous rugs, too. The fan gives that special touch. I’ve heard good things with cakewalk. I use Garge Band. I just love before and after pictures. You’ve got some good ones here!

The place looks great, I’m entirely jealous (I live in a house built for hobbits).
Is there anyplace that’s NOT ideal for a drum set?? Ours is in the living room, across from the computer, so all you need to do is swivel around in your chair to play.

I love old houses too! In fact I grew up in one. I didn’t appreciate it then,but now I wish I had it. I love to visit old towns and marvel at the beauty of the oldness of them, the history, the colors, & just dream of living in one again.
Oops,I’m rambling…
Great house!
