"This Old, Stuffed House"

Category: Daily Diary

OK, so another funny milestone along this strange journey. Yesterday the story of our house adventures was on our local public radio station, Chicago Public Radio, on the local show 848 and during All Things Considered.

This Old, Stuffed House
Lisa Labuz ? Correspondent, Chicago Public Radio News
We hear the story of a Chicago couple that bought their first home...and got a whole lot more than they bargained for.

You can listen to the story in their online archives if you have Real Media Player. Click here. Or click on the June 7th broadcast and scroll down to that segment....or search for "stuffed house" on the Internet.

PS - Yes, we're fans and members of public radio. You should be too, even if you live outside of Chicago their programming is worth an online listen! Join here.

How cool is that! You're branching out into radio! That story totally captivated me (which is hard to do since I have the attention span of a 3-year old). It makes me really appreciate the things from your house that now have a new place in mine. I'm captivated by the history that just ooozes out of all the cracks and crevices in your bungalow. And you've only begun to research. Wow. Just wow.

We had fun listening to your story...very cool! Thanks for the link. Good luck in all your house adventures!

What's next? 60 Minutes? Larry King Live? NAH! Got to be Oprah!!!!POPS"30"

Although I have head all the details of the NPR piece before I have listen to the story several times and ya know what? I get teary eyed when I hear the part about the Year Book. Maybe Lisa can do a yearly update! I'll continue to read your daily diary for more amazing finds. Elaine

I would totally watch a home reno show with you guys.

It was great to hear your voices, after following your writings on this site. Hey, this is not exactly on the subject, but I just bought a silent paint remover - any advice on setting the thing down while scraping?

You know, when we feel down about working on the house (like today...we've returned from Alaska and it is humid and hot in here), all we have to do is read the comments section.

Really.

Sometimes Our family and friends and wellwishers are what keep us putting another foot out there, when we feel very very NOT like moving another foot.

So thank you. Thank you from the bottom of our dusty and Craftsman-tool owned hearts. We might be doing this anyhow, but it wouldn't be have as much fun without you looking over our shoulders.

p.s. SPR...we use either: old piece of untreated scrapwood, old piece of tin, or old piece of rough marble (found in basement) for setting down the Silent Paint Remover. Otherwise, your arms can REALLY get tired sometimes! We found that things go a lot faster, if we have extra hands, when two people work in tandem with it. That seems to be the quick way.
