The Cross House

    • Beautiful!! I ran across this blog and I’ve been reading the whole thing! It’s really amazing what you’re doing, I love old houses. I currently live in a house that was built in 1899. Since I don’t really have the time or money. The restoration has been going very slowly on my house. Keep up the good work

  1. Have you decided whether or not you’re going to use color #3 to accent the other curved dining room window, or are you going to paint over the one you already experimented on, having decided it was *too* much? I’m curious, as I’m on the fence myself.

  2. I just discovered this blog last week, and read it start to finish!! When I got to this last post I was so sad there was no more to read! I am so very happy that I accidentally happened upon it! I have loved architecture and old homes for as long as I can remember. When I was young my Legos were solely used for making mini floor plans for houses, lol. I get goosebumps touring old homes, the character of them, the charm, and the workmanship is like nothing that is currently being built today. You are not far from where I live, and I hope we can come visit someday!

    My husband and I just bought our first home. It is a tiny little two bedroom 1920’s shotgun house, located out in the country just outside Kansas City. Most of it’s character was lost by the previous owners who gutted it back to the studs. But your blog has inspired us to work to add back some of the lost character!! We are not too far from you, and you are definitely now on our list of places to visit!! And I cannot wait to read the books you plan to publish, if they are anything like this blog they will be fantastic!! Also, just so you know, have loved your posts on Trump ; )
