The addition bath never did have plans or cabinet designs. As far as we had seen, all the past photos showed counters, fixtures and cabinets that didn't match the main home. Janet and I felt the bath in the addition didn't reflect the same FLW design details of the main home. Along with Designer Chris Magee we created a plan that simulated the second floor main bath's features and textures. From exposing the block to finding an original matching sink every detail reflects the original FLW materials, fit and finish of the main home.

The event Friday, October 24, 2008 was a great success. I'm even glad it rained an inch. We were a bit packed in but glaser works put on a wonderful presentation. $250 was donated to the Northside Redevelopment Corp. and also the Civic Garden Center. We'll do another event in the spring. Bracing for winter. Thanks to everyone involved.

Barb Yankie of Homes +, Inc. took infrared photos of the home in the Spring of 2007 and provided a detailed report indicating where sealing work needs to be done. I plan to have all the corner and flat glass resealed before next winter. For the corners I'm using Lexel Clear Sealant from Sashco Sealants, Inc., 103300 East 107th Place, Brighton, CO 80601, 1-800-289-7290 which is the clearest I've found. Thanks to Stan Beck of Beck's Hardware for tipping me off about it. The last set of photos show the radiant coils in the living room floor.
In the Spring of 2006 I got the opportunity to visit. One element that isn't featured most texts is that the home is placed on the north side of a hugh Maple tree that shades the entire residence.
http://beckhardware.blogspot.com This is the blog I started as a feature of Beck Hardware's web site. I'm always shopping at Stan and Chris Beck's store and they had me create a site for them. I thought it would be a nice feature to have a homeowner's blog on it. The blog is the most complete history […]
