My Most Clicked Photos

I suppose everyone knows that if a photo on my blog is double clicked it will come up by itself, often larger than the one in the post.   Following are the ten most clicked pictures from this past year.

The simple and inexpensive tutorial for building bamboo trellises is here.

I would have loved these demi-john lights but ultimately decided against them in favor of something smaller and less expensive.

Lots of people have been interested in the fixtures and finishes we used in the renovation.

Even though we decided not to use Hardieboard on the outside of the house the comprehensive color chart has been useful to a number of people.

A combination of this plan and number was used to create the new additions.

Number 7 is yet another shot of the trellises. It would be interesting to me where people went with these trellises.  I’m hoping someone creative built something spectacular.

Our architect gave us two sketches from which we could mix and match.

Another working floorplan comes in at number 8.  Ultimately we changed and enlarge much of the back part of the house and we not to have a wraparound porch.

And finally at number 10 another variation on the bamboo trellis.  People (especially gardeners , I presume) seem very interested in building bamboo trellises.  For more information put “bamboo” in my search engine and you will have all the building fundamentals of a cheap and easy garden support system.

None of these photos were taken this year and most are from 2011.

What are you looking back on from the past year?

Welcome to The Glade, where the second generation of renovations has just begun and the mania about our home, music and other passions fill our days and nights. We’re Charlie and Jo in the music world; Mary Jo and Charles to family; and JoJo and Charlie to each other. We are renovating a midcentury house in a Victorian historic district where we want to live there the rest of our lives. It's a 1946 house located in Maryland. We were married in this house. Thus far (pre-blog) we refinished cabinets, added a window seat (still working on the cushion), rearranged a wall in the guest house due to sink/vanity replacement, planted a vegetable garden, and other quick and not-so-quick fixes. So this latest zeal for construction is the result of my having lived here since 1997 and feeling a need to ready the house for the next chapter and beyond.
