Leaky Roof

Well, the roof restoration project is getting pushed forward, as the leak is rather visible and audible these days, with all this rain. So, the house is full of contractors going up and down the stairs, pricing the work... Will keep you posted.


  1. Hi, Great house. Have you checked the library's Essex County/Montclair atlases? Also, they should have the Montclair Directories that might be helpful. They might even have a file on the Cedars in the Local History Dept.

  2. Thanks for the comment. And, yes, I have both the Atlas info and the file from the Town.

We found the "missing" house

Thanks to one of our readers, Robert, who identified the house on South Mountain Avenue.

I almost crashed into a tree while looking at it and can't believe I never noticed it before. It was right there. I mean, it looks exactly the same as in this photo. Right?

The funny thing is that I drive by the house almost daily. Which goes to show you just how many things go unnoticed in our lives...

Award from Montclair Historic Preservation Commission

Our lovely porch restoration has won an award from the Montclair Historic Preservation Commission for Brick and Mortar Preservation project in the residential category.

We are very honored. Here is the story in Baristanet.

And here is the photo of the porch.

The awards ceremony is on Thursday, November 19. We hope to see you all there.

Kids Bath: Electrical - DONE

Electrical - DONE, TOO! Yay!

However, he opened a hole in the wall in the wrong place above the mirror, so now that needs to be patched up tomorrow. That means an extra day tacked on. We really wanted it to be finished tomorrow. We are already 4 days over schedule. Ugh.

I. Need. This. Job. To. End.
