The NE Corner. A 2/3 Mark.



TODAY. I am about 2/3 done with the second floor inside corner!


Tomorrow, I will start on the remaining second-floor strip! A lot of the first-floor is already done, so finishing that last bit on the bottom should be soon!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      I agree!

    What Sandra said! I drove by the house the other day, and it’s looking fabulous. So impressed by all the progress you’re making.

      So jealous that you live there and see the house in person.

      • Barb Sanford on August 8, 2018 at 7:03 am

        Come visit! I do. I don’t actually live here, but I’m back often to see family.

    How exciting!!!

    It still amazes me how you transform materials that look so old and worn out into materials that look so new they might have been just installed yesterday.

    • Ross on August 7, 2018 at 11:06 pm

      That is the fun part!

      Thanks, Mike!

    Freshness! — Crispness! —2 cornerstones of the Cross House transformation!

    None of this possible without Ross restoration magic!

    Sweaty, Tyvek adorned -man doing He-man & Herculean pursuits!

    You really need a handsome guy holding a refreshing cocktail — waiting on ground level — bottom of the scaffolding! Perhaps after a refreshing shower?

    Nothing prepares for the magnificence of Cross House in person. Mere mortals appear Lilliputian— next to god-like Herculean Restoring Ross bounding stone steps to greet & welcome visitors! Pics unable to do justice to the incredible masterpiece that is — Cross House!

    Are you going to be painting #5 on the curved bit under the brackets on the left side like you did on the right? I hope so! But maybe I’ll get the answer to that question as I read on!
