Above picture is from 1938.

P and I have taken on a project that many have labeled as crazy. This c. 1920's Spanish Revival was a foreclosure that had been vacant for about 2 years. This blog is my attempt to document our renovations of what was once a grand old house. Maybe someday it will be again. Someday.

I hate plaster.

Maybe not as much as birds, but I do hate it.  What's even worse is plaster under a leaking roof.  And we have both.  No problem, we'll just tear it out.  Did I mention that plaster is like brittle, dusty concrete?  So far we've removed the plaster from most of the kitchen (walls/ceiling), the master bedroom ceiling and the upstairs ceiling in the hallway/stairwell.  The benefits of this upstairs is we get to add recessed lights and insulation.  The benefits downstairs is a new kitchen.
