Star Ledger and The Cedars

I will have you know that The Star Ledger, New Jersey's largest local newspaper, will publish an article about the House and what we are doing here. Aha!

The local journalist is coming tomorrow morning to talk to us. We've already had the photographs taken a few weeks back. Just the kids playing in the Hall. Figured it would make for a nice contrast - 125-year-old stairs and windows and two children, oldest of which just turned 2.

I will keep you updated on when the article will be published, and will certainly post the link as well.

P.S. Still reeling from speaking to Fenn's great-great-great-granddaughter yesterday. I had a really hard time falling asleep. Now I want to find the rest of his descendants. [smile] As if I need another project.

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.
