Fantastic opportunity you had there. In renovating something from our past.

I too am interested.

I like what you’ve shown so far. You’re right, three pictures won’t do. The three picture limit only has to do with the three across the top of the page. You can easily post more in this project on your next post.

There’s some interesting character in the wood you’ve shown restored. What kinds of wood are shown in each picture and what are the steps you take in restoring them to the state pictured?

I notice the canopy that was constructed over the entire roof. It looks like they are spareing no expense in preserving this building. What is the breif history behind this place, how extensive is the project, who’s funding it, and what are the reasons behind the investment?
