a picture of the front porch of this house. I did so because I loved the scruffy old door.
Scruffy no more. Same door, shined up nicely, with new old hardware from one of my favorite stores, Gayle's Pasadena Architectural Salvage.
The whole place looks a bit more dapper, doesn't it? What a difference a year makes.
I met the homeowners and they gave me a tour. They may not realize how much progress they've made in a year, but I hope they can see it here. There's much work still to be done yet much worth to be had in this house. It's one of Pasadena's oldest homes, circa 1896, though no one's exactly sure what year it was built.
Over the next few days I'll tell you more, with pictures.
