Another Door Update

The Cottage has new double-glazed windows, a new front door with an integral slatted blind, and now a new storm door.

The conservatory steps across the yard are reflected in the new door.

This door allows the main door to sit open while some breezes blow through the screen and extra light shines into the Cottage’s main room.

The Cottage has an updated look and is more secure.

The new doors and windows have made the interior of the Cottage very quiet and peaceful.

The screen door allows the main door to stand open during the summer.

When the screens are in use the sounds of our many birds can be heard.

It’s fun to watch the Cottage being transformed into a home.

Do you have a favorite home pastime in summer?

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.

  1. Looks better every day! My favorite summer pastime is simply sitting on our porch or deck and enjoying the gardens–after they’ve been weeded, of course.
