We have been on a roll these past several months, having some much needed work done on our 1922 Craftsman bungalow. How lucky we are to have an outstanding contractor who, over the past five years has done everything for us from a complete kitchen and recent bathroom remodel to hanging our new front door.
Recently, on somewhat of an impulse, we decided to replace our ancient and inefficient floor furnace, our only heat source during cold weather. Since San Diego summers have grown hotter and more humid, we also opted to have central air-conditioning installed.
Because we had a small window to get the work done, I have sandwiched the project between a few fall dinner parties. This means it will be a couple of weeks before I’m posting again, due to all the mess and disruption that the work will create. So, I wish all my readers a happy Halloween – I’ll be back in two weeks with a new recipe for pumpkin ravioli and a stunner of a cranberry cocktail to follow.
Good luck with all the construction – the front looks stunning!
Thanks, Beth – trying to get everything done well before Thanksgiving –
I love the new door!!! Congrats on the all the work being done, it must feel so good 🙂 My site is going through a makeover right now and my blog is going to have it’s own searchable module, I am excited about that. Thanks for keeping me on your blogroll my friend! XX
It’s a ton of work and hassle but, yes, worth it – thanks, Wendy –
Good luck with the construction! The front of your house looks lovely! Look forward to the pumpkin ravioli- one of my favorite meals!
Thanks, Jayne – gearing up for it after tonight’s dinner party.
Your door looks good. I love you site and you recipes.
I will miss your posts but am excited for you that you’re getting A/C!
You can hide out here next heat wave, Lisa –
Your house is so cute and beautiful. You will totally enjoy your AC this summer!
We can’t wait, Laura – thanks.
Good luck! GREG
I hope by now it’s on the almost-done side of the equation! Here’s hoping! 🙂
It is indeed done, Averie, and I cannot believe how many years I went without central heating – bliss! Posting again Friday. Be well, my friend –
The door is just gorgeous. And so authentic to the era of bungalows, my favorite house design. It was so wonderful to finally see your charming, welcoming home and hope to do it again soon.
Thanks, Susan – it was wonderful to have you and Myles here and finally begin to repay for your hospitality when we saw you in the Bay Area.
