    Excellent. I’ll keep my fingers crossed for you — after all, the sooner this one is in the bag, the sooner you can go onto another one and we get to see it all over again!

    Great video, much appreciated.

    We are from South Park and cannot believe the level or workmanship you’ve done over there! I drove by with my wife and just wanted to tell you, thank you for doing it right and restoring a part of our San Diego’s history!

    Thanks SG! Glad you appreciate what we’ve done. I love South Park and Golden Hill, maybe we’ll find something over there soon. Let me know if there are any old bungalows your neighbors might be interested in selling; )

    Jewel, I’d have to say that with a home of that age, make sure your electrical, plumbing, foundation and roof are good before starting with any cosmetic interior work. When choosing interior finishes try and use period materials like white cabinetry and ceramic tile. The heating is essential in your region too, if you are on wall furnaces I would consider going to a central heat forced air for sure.

    Painting the outside is one of the best ways to bring her back to life. I would carefully choose period correct colors that don’t clash with neighbors homes. Don’t hesitate to use at least 3-4 different colors. The Sherwin Williams “Americas Heritage” palette has some great Victorian colors. They used to offer a “Victorian House Color” brochure but its no longer available. Maybe you can find one online.

    There are also online stores selling reproduction Victorian gingerbread details if your home is missing them. Adding these features back is a definite must if they are missing.

    Good luck, send me pictures and have fun!
