1914 Restoration


Here is our home, pre-restoration (9-2013) as we bought it. Located in Eustis, Fl. I will add interior pictures next and up to where we are at today and so on throughout the progress. I hope you enjoy it! (I can do this here I hope?) 6 pictures at a time!

The old homes are a labor of love, they just have that warm feeling about them once restored.

I see a whole lot of old peeling paint.
About a 100% chance of it being lead based.
Do you and you family a favor and buy some Peel Away II paint stripper and strip it before they move in!
No way do you want to be sanding it.

Ya, we're not sanding it. Is this the best product you've used yourself? I noticed the stripper we used on some interior doors did all but the last layer. We have been told it's most likely buttermilk paint on the first layer? What's your thought on this?

So great to see green grass! Haven't seen it for a while here in West Virginia! LOL I am buying an older home too. Not sure just when it was built but the main floor joist are 1/2 logs with the bark still on them! Anyway, we also have a lot of wood cabinets and door frames that have been painted over the years that we'd like to strip down. What kind of paint stripper did you use?

We've been using the run of the mill ace, HD, lowes stripper. Gets it down to the first coat but doesn't affect the first coat. Sanding and feathering a primer then paint

Read all the warnings on the can of stripper you have been using then read the warnings on Products like Peel Away, citrus, and soy strippers.
I've been to some Shaker villages where they had made there own milk based paint and the paint is still stuck on after 100 years.
May be why none of the major paint company's promote it.

Ya, the last (first) coat left behind is still in great condition after 100 years. just needs to be feathered for the new coats.

I love that house! I hope you continue to post.

You can get the same effect of Peel Away by using Citristrip and covering it with freezer paper while it dries. Freezer paper is paper on one side and saran wrap on the other. It is identical to the paper Peel Away sells with their product. It keeps the stripper from drying out while it works. When I last had to strip a project I got a big roll of freezer paper at Walmart. I don't think I ever see I at my regular grocery store. I figured this out after I used up all the Peel Away in town and needed a substitute.
