    I’m here from Houzz 🙂 And I am never leaving. Not only is it fun to view and read about your home restoration journey, but I love love your writing. Your sense of humor shines through. If I knew you in real life you’d be a new friend. You crack me up!!!

    You stinker. I did NOT need another blog to read but now you’ve snagged me–hook, line, and sinker. Also came from Houzz. My fault I suppose, not yours, but at least now I have some moral support for my own Craig’s List adventures. Cheers!

    Hi Victoria! Came to visit via Houzz…and am NEVER leaving! I usually don’t comment on blogs- (a “lurker, I guess), but surely you must be a kindred spirit! We share the same names, V.E. and last initial, B.; both love old houses…purchased wearing rose colored glasses, ( ours, a former dairy farm circa 1900), also doing most of the work ourselves. My husband and I grew up just outside Phila. and now reside in the Pacific NW. I have a fanatic love of Craigslist…and plan to use your blog to point out to my husband that there IS someone else as crazy as me! Thank you sooo much! Can’t wait to read more!

    I just love it when I open my email and I see that I have something in my inbox from my female superhero… I always enjoy reading about your ventures in life… Thanks for including me…

    I too came here from Houzz and will never leave – heading to the beginning of your blog and plan to spend the rest of the day reading forward!

    Just wanted to let you know that I’ve finally caught up after reading every post from the beginning, including all the comments. One indicator of a great blog, after the writing style and ‘voice’ of the blogger, is the interaction in the comments – and you have some very fine commenters. Congratulations on Houzz, and Huffington Post, and as others have already said I’m sure this is just the beginning of your wider fame. Many thanks to Janet at The Gardener’s Cottage for letting me know of your existence. I’ll not be leaving any time soon.

    I live in a small Victorian terraced house in York (England) that needs a lot of work. In the unlikely event that you and Paul ever feel like a free working holiday, complete with willing but overwhelmed assistant, you know where to come….

    Loved the article on Houzz! Eye opening. I know I could not do what you’re doing. I have people in my house working on things for three days and I start getting itchy to have them leave. I like my space. I am in awe.

    Your last paragraph (in the houzz article) made me cry. I could have written that about my husband too.

    Oh my God it’s called Gumtree down here Down Under and I have a magpie called Gladys not a raccoon. But I think we are twins. Except you’re tall. And I say G’day. Love your work.
