If you’ve been following our home giveaway blogs for any amount of time, you know I’m a fan of old homes, particularly old stone homes. So the foundation of Blog Cabin 2012 intrigues me. According to the experts at Knickerbocker Group, the foundation comprises a collection of materials added over time: locally quarried granite cubes, fieldstones unearthed by the original owners as they farmed the property and poured concrete. Our home’s foundation proved solid as a rock (sorry for the pun), but there are occasions when a stacked stone foundation, though charming, can trigger headaches for the homeowner. Considering purchase of your own dreamy historic home? Then dig into our investigation of stone foundations to learn more about issues you may face.
In other news, I had the opportunity to chat last week with our interior decorator Victoria Lesser. You may remember her from Blog Cabin 2011. She’s back again and full of creative decorating ideas for our high-posted cape. Later next week I will share a special interview with this amazing lady (she used to be a fashion designer!) and learn more about her plans to “dress” Blog Cabin. And answers to your questions are coming. We are listening, read each and every comment and are working hard to deliver as much detail as we can. Stay tuned!
