The Finished Product

Here are a good number of photos that show the finished interior of the Eppstein residence. It looks like one last post will be necessary as there is a lot of information to share and it takes time to gather it all. Look forward to seeing the Eppstein residence in an upcoming issue of the Wall Street Journal.
Well, it was a great journey and though it seems like it may be coming to an end.... this is just the beginning. The restoration is ending but the new life that has been breathed in to the home is going to live on for a very long time.
One interesting thing you will see is very large painting. The owners commissioned the artist to make this painting for the home.
I should also mention that you will be able to find the home on airbnb, so if you would like to stay there for a few nights or longer then check it out Eppstein on AirBnB
On Dec. 7th a professional photographer came in and took about 700 photos. Yes, seven hundred.
These photos you are about to see here are were not taken by a professional photographer. Just thought I should disclose that. Here you go.

All Good Things Must Come To An End........

Even Project Eppstein. On November 7th, 2017 a post will be made here with lots and lots of pictures and information detailing the amount of work that went into the Eppstein Residence. I will cover as much as possible about the many updates, repairs and the trials and tribulations that the new owners have gone thru. It has been a long journey and a good one. In the end the new owners will have cemented their names in the history of The Acres and the Eppstein Residence.
As of today the only work that remains is cleaning, installing furniture, artwork and curtains.
The new owners have purchased so many books that will compliment the home and fill its shelves for years to come and the picked up a vintage stove from the era that is a great looking addition to kitchen. Stay tuned..... the end is nigh.

A Painter Makes A Red Oak Bench....

Joe Farkas, who is not just a great house painter, but also an amazing artist, gave the new owners an incredible gift: a bench that he carved from a single log of red oak. They have nicknamed the bench "The Eppstein House Bench" and it will stay under the carport!
Joe was simply giving a gift of appreciation for the new owners and what they were doing with the house at The Acres. Joe is a jack of many trades with metal working being high among his many talents.
I can say that having personally seen the bench it is beautiful and it is comfortable....it is also extremely heavy.
