Double dose of work

Saturday we got a double dose of housework. We got to the abode at 10AM and hit the kitchen. Ceiling plaster and lathe were flying when a contractor arrived for an interview and to check out the scope of work at 10:30. We spent the next hour and a half walking through the house, showing the "bones" to these two guys. They came highly recommended from friends in the Short North who have had work done by them on businesses. We liked them alot (as we have others), but we have to see the bid before we make any decisions! When we were done we headed to the BIAC to donate the kitchen sink, cabinets and multiple ceiling fans (two from the kitchen, one from our current house that we upgraded for the possible future sale of the property). Home for a thorough shower (Eric looked like a coal miner) before we went to the German Village Society old home workshop. It was a very informative class about how to research the history of your house. It was both fun and informative, if highly geared towards German Village properties. We went straight from there to Hilliard to pick up the French doors in the photo above. We are proud to say they are another craigslist score (can you believe they were $20?!) We think they have potential to be the doors for the study on the first floor. Then BACK to the house for another round of demo/cleanup on the kitchen. We had to give it up about six as it was getting too dark to see. Home for another big shower!
