  1. hmm, I need at some point to make a trek up to that area to better secure a fixer upper with some boards until the owner gets back in a couple of weeks. Maybe I'll see if I can arrange to look at it at the same time. Ordinarily I'd run to the library to check for copies, but the libraries aren't open...

    Woolsey's Mining Shack

    Spring Fling 2009 entry. William Anderson Woolsey, my 3g grandfather was a 49'er. I decided to make my house based on a miner's shack.

Jade is related to former United States Senator and space shuttle passenger Jake Garn (I didn't think to ask if she was named after him, but Jade is only one letter off Jake). The house was very sturdy in its construction, excepting the balcony rails. The house was peach and white when I acquired it. I have been stripping the balcony rails and various trim, which led to me slicing

    San Francisco Rehab 2009

    I acquired this house at the end of January. I paid $30. Not all the parts were present and some of the bay sections were glued upside down! After getting it home, I left it out in the below freezing temperatures and went to work at the bay pieces with a hammer to break the glue.
