It’s Almost June — Yikes!

Work at my house has almost come to a standstill due to Charlie’s knee surgery.

Glade Cottage

The Cottage on the other hand is getting more improvements this week.

We’re looking forward to:

  1. A new storm door.

    We got rid of this storm door but now the Cottage will be getting a new one.
  2. Interior shutters in the kitchen and laundry windows.

    Our Treetops bedroom has shutters in the windows.
  3. A tall toilet.

    Our new toilets in the house are of the taller “comfort” variety.
  4. A roof over the doorway.

    I mocked-up a roof over the door — can’t wait to see the real thing.

Have you had a roadblock?

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.
