The Cross House
I do not think I have ever seen Justin quite so excited.
You see, Justin has been doing a lot of work on the Cross House. He is the Main Guy, and the one who has been lifting sagging parts of the house, demolishing non-original parts of the house (or rotted), building new sections of the house as required, and generally doing a bit-o-everything.
Yesterday he called me and sounded breathless with excitement. “Can I stop by?” he asked.
Ten minutes later he was at my door. But rather then step in, he wagged his finger for me to come out. “I want to show you something in my car.”
What, I wondered, is he so giddy about? A new puppy?
And there, strapped into the front seat….
Well, I was agog! And I am thrilled we can reuse the old toilet as new toilets just do not look right in vintage bathrooms, even though they use vastly less water. So, I am choosing, yes, yes, aesthetics over ecological efficiency. Still, by restoring on old house rather than building a new LEED-certified home, I am using less of the Earth’s resources, and should get points for that!
Oh, I promised Justin the first pee.
I might even film the honor.
And post the video on this blog.
