let's catch up...double gates and a day trip to Quebec
When I started out I really had no concrete design. I knew it would be white, I wanted a curved top and that is all I knew for sure.My goal was to build a pretty, strong but light gate. The desire to build a gate extra bulky to be strong from what I understand is the wrong way to go, lighter the better. And light is not light, trust me these gates were heavy to move.
When going through the town I noticed this one house and property, it was incredible....I had to take a better look and get some photos.Here it is.House Porn...
The current owners have moved the house back off the country road it sits on and have been restoring it for the past 12 years and they are doing a great job.
It has changed a lot, things have been moved around but the foot print is the same for the most part. It was so neat to get to see it now. They have added rooms in the attic spaces. It makes me so happy to see the house full of life and to see children there. I remember the house being very tidy and perfect and rooms that felt untouched as for a long long time my Opa lived there alone so it's nice to see it being really lived in.
Isn't it amazing how this banister has stood the test of time, I remember it as a little girl...
Thanks for coming along with me down memory lane..I think we are all caught up.
I'm off to do some much needed gardening today, what did you do this weekend?
