we have begun all this last summer. the house has been in our possession since 2001. our son was just turning 1 when we first moved in after finishing some small renovations, well maybe not so small, and now the changes are a lot bigger. we decided to stay here simply because of the neighborhood and the sheer proximity of downtown. we did think about moving somewhere, where we could build new, but i always loved the idea of reusing an older building. there is so many great examples of this treatment in this city. i will try to collect some of my favorite homes this summer as i try to squeeze in some riding (or maybe scootering) with our friend colin A. this is a test of my hobby building skills.
here are a couple of drawings i did of the future pinedale house. i will fill in the story as we ramble on. tomek
