Our hot weather is making it difficult to do real work, so I've turned my attention to getting our remodel planning started. We've been negotiating with Green Hammer recently, but today I found another promising-looking firm, Craftsman Design and Renovation. I like many of the samples in their online portfolio and their work appears in some of my bungalow books. We have an appointment with them on Thursday morning.
I'm anxious to get a remodel plan finished so we can get started on something! I'm itching to start scraping some paint off woodwork so we can figure out just how difficult a job we're taking on. I scored some douglas fir salvage doors last week and I think I'll try the electric paint stripper on them once it cools off later in the week.
I'm looking forward to dreaming about the possibilities. I've already begun making sketches of dreamed of floor plans. This is exciting for me.
