just let 'er go


You might notice that the better part of a year has passed since I last blogged about my darling HouSe oF LeaVeS. The house has been sold-- because of some... trouble... with dad's business partner, I think we just about broke even on the house, instead of making a major profit like I think we'd all hoped.

But money aside, the house rocked hard. We made major changes and I miss it so very very much. I know dad had "final" pictures of the house but he has yet to upload them, so when/if he ever does, I'll do a final blowout post so you can see all the alterations we made.

Thanks for sticking with the blog and I'll let you know when we start a new house!

Ghost town.

No, I haven't forgotten about this blog.

The HouSe is at a stagnant place right now. Dad and Michael are living in it full time, and using it as an office for their businesses. Obviously, it's livable. There are still plenty of cosmetic changes that I can photograph soon and post, but the HouSe isn't really undergoing any serious changes right now and may not be for a while.

There is talk of acquiring a new property soon, but if so it won't come to fruition until mid to late August at the earliest. I'll be sure to keep you updated... hopefully that would mean a new blog and a whole new transformation!

Hold tight for the pictures of Raglan, though. It's still a gorgeous behemoth of a house and it's very photogenic. ;)

Been a long time, been a long time...

Yeah, long time no post. Sorry. I have been without a real computer. I've had no photo posting capabilities, and I haven't been to the HoL in a while because of my job. BUT... the computers have been all rigged up, so my first course of action... well, was a virus scan. But my SECOND course of action was to post your beloved pictures. So there. Enjoy.

Even more progress has been made since these were taken, but hey. It's better than nothing.
