Back to our little blue Victorian…

We are finally back to working on our little Astorian Victorian.

You may remember from previous posts that we had our home painted! The old gray and white paint was peeling badly so it desperately needed a new coat of paint. We agonized over colors for many months but finally settled on blue, off-white and brown.  (Benjamin Moore selection).

We continue to get compliments and praise for our color choice! Our neighbors, dog walkers, people driving by etc. etc. randomly stop by and tell us they absolutely love it.

And yes… that is the “Goonie House” on the hill in the background.

… our busy designer/craftsman

Our designer/craftsman (aka son) has been super busy with a big job. Designing, tearing down and rebuilding a kitchen in Portland (swyftdesignworks.com).

He has moved windows, put doors in new places, installed arches, and made all the cabinets, shelves etc. etc…. Not your basic kitchen remodel.

Looking good! Almost done.

Meanwhile, back in Astoria, our little Victorian is waiting patiently for his return. It too will get a new kitchen!

Presently … our old kitchen is half torn up. Part of it had to be moved to the dining room area :). Still functional but awkward.
