Yes, I’ve been checking out local bloggers this morning. Mary Duan (editor of the Monterey County Weekly) has been posting about house renovations on her blog, House226, since she bought a large Victorian house in Salinas, and moved there from the SF Bay Area.
I occasionally see Mary at the Cherry Bean on my, ahem, work days (freelance, that is). Anyway, I lost track for awhile. But I just visited her blog, and noticed how great the house looks now, even with the unfinished floors. Love that dining room blackboard wall!
