No sheep to tend to so Buoy watches the final burn of the season.

Missy loves swinging a sledge hammer or crowbar whenever she gets the chance. And no one dresses better than she does while destroying a wall. Here she is removing the closet in the apartment to make the space work more efficiently. Not sure this is OSHA compliant...

When the house was acquired I told Missy I'd love to put the old kitchen sink "under glass" because it was like a piece of folk art. But that old issue of water damage had other ideas. One day I noticed the soap stone sink had sunk a bit in the back. After investigatio...

Part of the draw of the Palmer Farm was the vintage pantry. Of course when the house was sold all the Loveless great antiques were removed so that part of the charm disappeared. An examination of the water damage to the pantry area (it sits beneath the old bathroom) re...

I'm down to one working bathtub at Tangledweed so I tend to bathe at night and have foregone shaving. I can't decide if I look like an old time biblical character or a homeless man. Anyway the other night I took a bath but forgot to pull the plug. Next morning I realiz...

The little side porch has been a bit of an eyesore since, well, forever. Since Rick already has about a dozen projects going, why not one more, right? So he attacked the side porch while Missy & I spent the day picking up the new-old kitchen. Jack up the post, replace...

Well it turned out that getting it off was far easier than getting it up. I'm talking about the sink here, people, pay attention.  I backed the U-haul up to the French doors in the back of the summer kitchen and, after struggling with the ice box, Rick, Missy and I sli...

Quite possibly the single heaviest sink you'll ever see. No idea how much this beast weighs but it is 12'6" long and heavy as hell. Needed four men to put it into the truck but I knew there would be just Missy, Rick and myself to unload it in Stockbridge. Add to the fa...

Missy came to Stockbridge to drive me to Oneonta on Friday, April 14, to pick up the kitchen. I rented a U-haul truck in Oneonta and headed to the architectural salvage yard. What a fascinating place and how good that the owner saved all these wonderful architectural i...

A new kitchen in an old house just felt wrong to us. So after much hunting and negotiating, this 1908 kitchen, removed for a Manhattan mansion, was located and purchased from New York Salvage of Oneonta, NY. See the next post for the moving of the kitchen.
