A great local holiday tradition

This weekend, we are going on a tour, the Essex County Historic Holiday House Tour. It boasts an impressive line up of 9 architectural gems in the Essex County that should be seen by everybody. And, when you do it as part of the tour, you get to see them all in one weekend. Fun!

We will be going on Sunday, and visiting the properties we haven't had a chance to see yet. Personally, I am very interested in the Kip's Castle (yes, I haven't seen it yet), and Thomas Edison's house. See you there.

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.
