Forgotten tool from an abandoned project – as seen through a window that I had installed a long time ago on tile carefully set by me. This was once our house – it was completely reconstructed over the 8 years we lived there. Then sold. Subsequent owners and renters left the house in ruins. A visit back saw the house gutted and lost.

Brass numbers hang neglected – a haven for spiders. I shaped that cedar plaque and affixed those numbers.

A sad sight for us. It was once nearly perfect. Time takes its toll.

Our garden shed was once bright and filled with plants and potting supplies. The grass was perfect and lovely boardwalks connected the shed to the main deck and garage. Weeds and wasps now.

But a new owner took on the challenge – just as we did in 1981. We thought it was nothing more than a tear down – but it’s new life for 818. Joy to see!

Thanks for your visit…

  1. I can only imagine how heartbreaking it must have been to see your house that you’ve put so much work into deteriorate like that. My husband and I have renovated a few houses (just the two of us, no contractors) and I can only imagine how it would feel to see them like that. But nice to see a happy ending to your post.
