I won the Preservation Award this year from the city for the restoration work I've done to my house. The slate roof, the removal of aluminum siding and restoration of clapboard, the porch ceiling restoration, etc. They were really nice and said it was long overdue. I said I'm not done yet. I am getting new copper gutters soon (next week probably) and still plan to build wooden storm windows (to replace the stupid aluminum triple tracks) and then I'll paint the house a historic color scheme once that's all done.
