« Part 9: The New New Mantel Part 10 of Craftsman Bungalow Restoration series Part 11: Dining in Style »


I am trying to get caught up with the old stuff, so I can write about the current renovation on the kitchen that started this week.

I have been struggling with where to keep this blog. I used to write about my house on my own blog. But I like the picture posting here.

I think this site design or some variant on gardening or home renovation would be useful to the many housebloggers out there.

Anyway.. I will keep on here.

Giz, you must do woodworking in your sleep. I don’t know how you do it between class and the renovations, but I’m glad that you do. Keep us posted! ;^)

Cool Lumberjocks and Gardenjocks….my two favorite things.

I’ve had my own website for many years, I was blogging before it was blogging. I love the community and the feedback here. How many hits do you get on your own blog Giz?

I still plan on maintaining a website (90% of our customers find us on the web) but I haven’t even updated it recently. I plan on having it do double duty for both the treefarm (landscaping stock) and for my woodworking (outside site furnishings related to landscaping). Any blogging I do will be right here with links from my own site…..once I update it…:)

I recently helped Martin edit the Lj’s “About” page .. and I hadn’t thought of it before (obviously I hadn’t read the “About Page”)... but we are given our own website here—our own website with our own blog and our own photo album. All in one package. What more could one ask for???

I know that Martin is talking about updating the personal “home pages” .. I can’t wait!!

oh, and I, too, am excited about the Gardening site. Gosh, I hope I’ll have time to actually get out to the gardens—with all the computer time I’ll be needing.

John -

I just added your site to my favorites just in case. My vote is to continue blogging here – its a great story and very interesting to follow.

John, don’t you dare take your story elsewhere. I’m following it with great interest.
