Here is a pic after I removed all of the fussy gingerbread trim. I also removed the fishtail shingles from the front and added some board and baton. I will be replacing the porch floors and rebuilding the railings and porch posts.
The Master Bedroom....
The Living Room!
The Attic.....reading nook, and bathroom.....

Jake and Alexis live in this awesome modern living space with their 10 year old son Daniel. Occasionally, Alexis and Jake had to hire outside help to get the jobs done.....Michael, and Gareth were regularly on the job site!
A little stained glass window and a funky chair!!
This is the original kit and a suggestion of what it should look like, inside and out.
Originally I had stained the first floor black (pics below) and had a white fireplace .... but I hated both and had to redo. Pretty much everything gets done twice in my Renos and builds!!
It is still a huge work in progress and there is tons to do before it is finished, but I sometimes break up the building work with a little fun creative stuff. Here are a few pics of some new additions.
