And the last few posts… 1 of 4

It’s been a while since I last posted anything, my thought has always been to introduce my next house project as I wrapped up the 5k experience. Things have moved slower than I first imagined, but the process to acquiring another house on my street is progressing. The idea is to realize a 25+ year dream to take a rather typical Cincinnati shotgun, remove the floors, add the appropriate structural support and place a swing inside the space. Daunting, to say the least… The effort and expense are huge but I seem to return to the belief that I need to make this happen. In the meantime it’s time to make a living, and with the recently purchased house in Northside, hopefully that will keep me going. I’m in the process of getting the blog going for that project, which I’ll share soon, but first I want to share Steve’s Paszt’s photos of the 5k house just prior to the Ashleigh and Brett’s arrival in late September. It’s an honor having them live in the house!

So… I want to explain what to expect in the next few posts. The photos will be of the interior of the house, the different rooms and their details of. I’m breaking it into four posts: the first floor, the hall/stairs, the second floor, and finally, my favorite detail shots. Seeing the pictures again was like fine wine, it only got better… enjoy, as I did.

The First Floor:
