Hi this is such a nice house. And I have liked its exterior a lot. May be I would copy it for my own. If you are planning to have this as your exterior , That would be really great....!!

Mark, thank you for the advice. I'm afraid you might be right. I've already had to pull out a little bit -- a discarded umbrella, wrappers from someone's lunch, etc. I'm hoping a tarp and a gentle but clear sign will help prevent anything major. If not, I may have to go the locking route.

Right now, I'm planning to do little or nothing to the outside. I agree; I think it's okay. We'd love to have a balcony, especially since we have neither front nor back yard, but I think that's in the too hard and too expensive box. If you like the way the outside looks, I think you'll be happy to see that it won't look any different a year from now! (Except hopefully the dumpster will be gone and the front steps will be back in place

Gut it! Get ready to learn to putz. You will want a kalk putz inside. They also make it with an insulation built in but that cost's a lot more. If I had time I would run down and check it out.. dorf dude...

Black Forest Renovation


After a few weeks away, was able to continue the demo over the Labor Day weekend and this week. The near wall in this photo had been completely plastered over, making for one dark kitchen behind it. I think it's opened up (and lightened up) nicely. Am planning to leave this as open as possible, with the beams exposed. The wall farther back was the original back of the house. I've opened it up also, and it looks out and down into what will be the dining room, part of a 1950s addition to the back of the house.
