Authors: JoeIt's not that I have anything against those fuzzy, long-eared, carrot-munching rodents. It's their dusty little cousins that I can't stand. Whenever I sweep my floors, I end up having to pick the dust bunnies out of the broom bristles. Well, not any more.

|Wainscott and Plate Rail Installed|
I got motivated to do some work in the dining room. I literally got more done in the past two days than I have in the past two years! Seeing Bungalowcious' finished interior really got me wanting to finish this thing already.
I spent about 9 hours on Saturday getting all of the new moulding cut and...

I'm Baaaaaack! Miss me?
You may have noticed that the blog got a redesign. Well, that's not all I've been up to! I'll have some fresh pictures and updates in the Dining Room, as well as some old posts from this summer that I never got around to writing. So stay tuned; I'll have some new posts coming very soon.

Block Party Today!
We're having a block party on NE 58th between Siskiyou and Stanton from noon 'till 8:00 PM on Sunday, July 25.

Authors: JoeTerry Border, of Bent Objects fame, has posted an image that not only do I love, but it ties in with the theme of this blog. Click over to his site and check out "Spray Paint". While you're there, spend an hour or two looking through his old posts. He's a creative genius.
2nd Annual Bungalow Blog Tour
- Published on Saturday, 08 May 2010
Authors: JoeWelcome to the 1916 Portland Bungalow! I've been racking my brain trying to come up with something interesting to post here today.

I'm Venting Here
- Published on Wednesday, 05 May 2010
Authors: JoeWho remembers the kitchen rebirth post? Nobody? Maybe that's because it was almost THREE YEARS AGO!! So why is that such a big deal?
