We finished laying the floor in the kitchen this week.
.
We were able to find utility grade oak flooring for 89 cents a square foot. A steel compared to Home Depot’s $3.07/sq ft.
.
Why the price difference? Utility grade flooring isn’t perfect. It has knots, color variation and some unusable pieces. It’s wasted wood from the manufacturer that they bundle and sell discounted.
.
Our home is 110 years old. We aren’t looking for perfect flooring. We wanted the flooring that we had to replace to match the age of the home. We originally were going to used reclaimed wood flooring from the reuse warehouses in the area, but they didn’t have any. It all depends on when materials are donated.
.
So now our new floors are in looking perfectly imperfect.

Late summer at the Coburn homestead, where my grandfather grew up (it was a dairy farm) and has been in the family since the first half of the 19th century, though the oldest part of the home dates back to the 18th century & has a dirt cellar. .

Love this house at 72 Quincy Street in Bed-Stuy. The Buildings Department says it was built in 1899 but whenever the date is “1899” it is almost always wrong. City records were very poorly kept and the 1899 date gets slapped on many buildings that are actually much older than that. With its wood frame, pitched roof and porch, I suspect this one is much older than 1899. If you happen to have more info on this house, please comment below! ⁣

Had the easiest of Sunday mornings here today and now I need to rush around like a mad woman getting the boys ready to go their dads and I’m off to the cinema with friends. Even though I’m rushing around I couldn’t wait to show you my new rustic stool from @acumencollection . I can’t wait to style it in various areas of the house and see where it fits best but I have a feeling it belongs by my beloved fireplace. Have a happy Sunday all x

One of my favourite parts of living at The Elderhouse (and let’s face it, at this stage there’s not much to love!) is the #birdlife We have a family of Starlings living just under the corner of the roof that we love to watch and listen to. Their metallic colours and incredible feather markings are amazing. We will be replacing the old tiled roof with colorbond eventually, so already feeling guilty about upsetting their home. For now they are safe, we are not progressing fast... #bird #starling #birdsofinstagram #birdphoto #feathers #featheredfriends # #theelderhouse #australianhomes #renovation #renovationproject #reno #australianhouses #renovate #creambrick #worsthouseonthestreet #morningtonpeninsula #realestate #oldhomes #fixerupper #fixthishouse 📷 @willowcreative

The Foster-Thomason-Miller home was built in 1883 and has a wealth of history behind it. At the time it was built the local paper referred to it as “the most elegant country home in Middle Georgia.” Situated on 11 acres, 5000 sq ft with 14 ft ceilings, the original elaborate interior was inspired by the tenets outlined in Oscar Wilde’s lecture on ‘The House Beautiful’ given by Wilde in Atlanta on July 4, 1882.
