We will drive down this weekend to do some preliminary cleanup of the lot as well as take additional pictures and do some further cost estimations but I am already planning 'well beyond' the "unglamorous" aspects of the home such as HVAC, Electrical and plumbing to the 'futute finsish work. We have already decided on the room configurations as will as the period and the historic design elements we plan on incorporating in the home.
I am planning 'design boards" for each room which basically will be a working plan for Wallpaper, furnishings and key design elements in each room such as lighting, lighting and fabrics/Wallapaper. In this case we are designing the Formal Parlor around some furniture we already own, as well as more period correct fireplace mantles that we will retrofit.
Today? Well I am tseting our portable generator and getting my tool boxes in order!
