Ahhh yes. The good ole days. The mighty Glenwood stood broad and strong.
Well, shit happens and things change.
I miss the yard with the pond and willow tree. The over all scene was eye catching - to me anyways.
Before my multiple moves and demolitions to the house, I had electrical.
Let me tell ya - that was sharp.
From beauty to this
Even setting the porch roof in place and covering up the base,
sometimes you just can't fix ugly. No matter how hard you try to cover it up or overlook it, the ugly is still there.
Original plan was to just find a sturdy, used coffee table to set the house back on.
Instead, I removed the basement that was home to the billiards room and boys bedroom.
I see another room box or two in my future.
The wheels were useless on the carpet, so that rig job was also removed .
Time to build a wall.
More like raise the roof -- the porch roof.
With great care, the porch spindles were packed away for a few years.
More like they were tossed in in box during a mad rush to move.
It has been like a puzzle trying to salvage them. I could purchase new posts and railings, but I would rather have a room box when the times comes.
One section at time, I have been able to piece them together and paint them the current color scheme.
Always nice to have some help.
She doesn't appear to look top-heavy anymore.
Maybe beige table skirt for the base?
My turtle also likes checking up on the Glenwood.
