Not alone when it comes to restoration

Of course I'm not alone in my restoration project with my new home, my grandmother's old home. I've got friends, and relatives, and friends of relatives, and relatives of relatives, and friends of relatives of relatives, and people I've helped move in the past. For the most part I technically don't know what I'm doing, but that will change.

Today I got a hit from someone doing a blog search on the word "renovations". I think it was basically someone out to leave comments that would drive traffic to a specific website - a website that might simply be selling some good or service, or might also be a virus-laden trap. In any event, I poked around the blog search results for the word "renovations" and found the blogsite Renovating On The Cheap , which promises "This website will teach you how to renovate without spending your life savings." Most of the projects look a little more sophisticated than I'd care to get into, but it seems worth a look.

Tomorrow we will either repair the front porch, or I will lay a color test patch of paint down on a relatively inconspicuous part of the porch - or both. Stay tuned!

Congratulations on all the progess you are making! I dare say you've accomplished more on your home in the past few weeks than we have in the past few years.

Be sure to post some more photos of your progress. I love to see how it's coming along. Ok, and I need it for inspiration too...

By the way, I LOVE your idea about the Live Strong flea bracelets in your comment! I love it so much that I am going to wear one to work one day. My coworkers have been getting a lot of mileage out of my flea problem.
