I have a cupboard! It was made by my great-grandmother - how awesome isn't that?

And a table, too! Dad salvaged it years ago from a building that was going to be torn down.

A threshold out of oak, made by a friend of dad's.

One of the walls shortly after applying iron sulfate/copperas/green vitriol. It will go more silvery grey over time and age beautifully.

The to-do list: Nail on batten (for board-and-batten siding), apply another round of iron sulfate/copperas/green vitriol, put the threshold and an inner door frame in place, make an inner frame for the big window, saw, paint and nail molding, paint the walls and ceiling another two or three times, fix a chimney. That's it. :iconbiggrin:
