Okay, whether we are even past the halfway point, I no longer pretend to know. Reality check: this is what renovation looks like. More pics from this phase at my Flickr site.

    It is going to be so fabulous!!! I can envision it from these pictures and your description. It must be challenging to not be able to have it right away, but it will be a house infused with your aesthetic and patience.

    Here’s a new thought. You know about the movements of Slow Cooking, and the book Slow Money? Let’s imagine a new aesthetic distinction for you and your house called Slow Beauty. Do you like that?

    I DO like that!! Slow architecture, slow house, slow beauty. We can dub the movement “slo-ren.”
