A customer of ours has a blog about her Bungalow Remodel, here in Portland, Oregon.  It is an incredible resource for anyone who is thinking about, dreaming about, or just plain interested in the respectful remodel of a classic Bungalow.  Here is her Blog

And here is what she kindly says about us in one of her entries:  
of the Laurelhurst Fan Company dropped by the exhaust cover. It is a thing of beauty! I am so glad I splurged on it. Because of existing constraints, the exhaust fan for the bath was placed on an interior wall. The fan was then vented through an exterior wall and under the back deck to obscure the exterior vent cover from view. But on the inside, I could not bear the idea of staring at a 14″ white plastic square vent cover every time I entered the bathroom, so I searched for something more vintage-looking and discovered the Laurelhurst Fan Company located right here in Portland, Oregon. Who thought something so mundane could be so gorgeous? I thoroughly enjoyed working with Johnny and Nicole and can’t wait to have the grille put up.”

OLDHOUSEFAIRTENT_150I just got back from the Architectural Heritage Center’s vendor meeting for the Old House Fair that I mentioned in the last post; it’s going to be a really fantastic event!
Home Depot has generously donated free hot dogs and pop to attendees and I heard many companies divulge their great raffle prizes; we are donating a grille of your choice. It’s going to be a relaxed atmosphere (free of sales pitches), with short programs if you so choose, products, and a wealth of information.
Essentially, it’ll be a great day of chatting with other old home enthusiasts, over a hot dog…and we’ll let you know if you have any ketchup on your face. 😉
