Projects in Process


The house is twenty-six years old. We built it in 1982 then in 1984 we signed a one year lease with a new tenant. At the end of a year we agreed to allow her to rent on a month to month basis not realizing at the time that she would ultimately stay for twenty-four years. She took care of lots of the maintenance, we contracted for other maintenance as she made us aware of the need. All in all she took very good care of the house, but when we moved in we made note of several projects that we wanted to do to improve our living space. We’ve found a local contractor who will do some of the things, we’ll do others ourselves. Steve borrowed scaffolding to finish the wall and ceiling paint job and to install the new dining room chandelier. Ken has removed the hood over the range and a cabinet in order to assess the space available for venting a new gas water heater and the new dryer. Now Steve’s next project is to remove the white paint from the shiplapped tub surround.

Cobh on Our Own

For our first adventure together on the Emerald Isle, we walked the streets of Cobh, County Cork, explored St Colman’s Cathedral, and visited the Cobh Heritage Center.
