The Chairs!
The pool and chain fence are going away.... for good.

Yeah, it was like that.
However....it turns out that though they were the chairs that Mrs. Eppstein owned... they are not the original chairs that went with the home. Mrs. Eppstein purchased them after she moved out of the home. Thanks to Maggie Eppstein for the that clarification. It is still incredible that they purchased the chairs that once belonged to the owner.
That is the story albeit it short.

All That Is Changing.......

The continued work at the Eppstein is really taking shape now. All of the windows have been replaced, the a/c unit is installed, the patio i...
