Well the house is pretty much finished being painted... here are some some pics. I am very pleased with how it came out. As they were finishing up the job i was thinking... "I wonder if the people who built this house over 80 years ago would by happy with what we've done to it. Even with as much work as we've done to it we have tried to keep it true to original form... Anyways, just something cool about living in something that has been shared by many a person.

Here is some shots...

I think they would be impressed, the house looks awesome.

They might be more amazed by the sweet appliances though, or the race track that has formed around the dining room from the gramsey 500 the kids take part in after home group every week.

i am not sure how to spell "to-shey"... but if I did I would write it here...


*I am sure Shannon or his wife Kim will help me out with the appropriate spelling and or footnote in due time...

How come Jason's family only gets one letter in the name of the house? Wouldn't it be more fair to call it the Ramre House or the Gosey House?

Or, since the Ramsey's out number the Gores by more than double, we could give them an extra letter. That would make it the Rare House or the Gomsey House.

Indeed, this is quite the conundrum (and yes, I had to type that into Word to see if it was spelled correctly).

Gomsey sounds good.

I didn't mean to detract from the house though, it really is amazing.

Wow. I like it a lot. It kinda reminds me of my old house in Old Towne Orange. Ashdown has seen it. Yellow, old Victorian. A 103 year old house in Orange County California is almost unheard of.
