Welcome to My Little Home on the Net

Hello, Blog Jog Day visitors!Blog Jog

New York Renovator is my little home on the Internet. I blog about our adventures as we *try* to fix up our 1855 home in Upstate New York. We’ve been here 10 years, but have really only recently begun to update. We’d been running on 1920s knob-and-tube wiring, a 1940s heating system, and 1950s plumbing for TOO LONG. Just a few months ago, we gutted and renovated our kitchen. By ourselves. Yes, I’m exhausted. lol. But not so much that I can’t blog about it. And I can’t believe WE DID IT!!!! Yay!

You can read about our story here. And read about the history of this house and how we got it, here. Or, you can just read about this year’s project, the kitchen and dining room. Or, if you’re looking just to have fun, you can check out my Find the Kitty Friday posts here. My Tabby Point Siamese cat, Livvy, is the star of that show.

Thanks for visiting!

    We’ve been through several renovations in our old house and I definitely understand your pain. Our kitchen was the worse–we had to eat dinner out for over a month. Our contractor was a pain to say the least.

    Good luck as you move forward.

    We did a 1935 house and THAT was a chore! Good luck!

    Rebecca, we built our home on Cluculz Lake, so I so know what you’ve gone through. If you didn’t shoot your husband, you’re doing good. Make sure to stop by my blog and enter to win a copy of Dead Witness. Happy jogging.

    Thanks for your comments!! I’m glad to hear that some of you have renovated your old homes, too. It makes me feel like I’m not the only one in the world who has suffered, LOL.
