I've been so un-motivated and discouraged with the Gloucester, staring at the front and feeling it was sooo plain, like a box. Finally after days and days of hunting pictures and web browsing it finally hit me how I wanted the front to look. So last night I popped on the Colin Firth Pride and Prejudice and got to work. I've installed the Quoins on either side, the facias on the top and began the brick/block on the bottom half of the wall and will have the top half a simple plain stucco with possible textured stenciling above the 6 top windows in place of pediments (we'll see about that though). It still has a lot of work but I wanted to post some progress since it's been so long since I've posted.


  1. I was wondering where you were. It's been over a month! I like your ideas for the Gloucester. Very authentic and with a lot of interest that a plain stucco wouldn't have. Keep up the good work and please keep posting. I want to see what you do for Colin and friends.

  2. It looks fantastic so far!! Isn't it funny how you can stare at something and research and research and nothing comes up and then all of a sudden- INSPIRATION! I am glad you are inspired and working at your house again :)
