Another Rummer in the news

This is a short, but good article in todays paper about a Lake Oswego Rummer kitchen re-do. They didn't do a historic restoration or anything, but I think they did a nice job making it work better for their family (breakfast bar, much more open to accommodate more people) with a few nice design touches (FADO ball lights from IKEA, polished concrete countertop). I'm quite taken by their cabinets made from Applewood plywood. They look really nice. Anywhoo...enjoy.

2008: A Year in Review

Here's a quick executive summary on the projects we tackled this past year. It's exciting to see all the progress we've made, yet a teeny bit overwhelming with what's still to be done.

Spruced up the atrium.

Gutted the kids' bathroom

Cleared out the backyard

Installed new exterior lights

Planted bamboo

Installed new house numbers

Fixed downspouts

Installed more exterior lights

Painted exterior

Built new flower beds

... and nearly finished the bathroom! The drywall is done, cabinets are ready to install, tile is up. Just need to get the floor installed so we can put it all in.
