    For the door with the pretty broken glass, you can replace it with a plain piece of glass and then use your Cricut to cut out any pattern you design/find/like. To set the pattern, use glass etch! You can totally customize the door inexpensively! And I know you have the skills and creativity to pull if off!

    You know that door with the broken glass panel, that is just an acid etched design. You can actually get glass acid etching kits at craft stores like Hobby Lobby, Michaels and Blick (I think) but definitely HL or Michaels, and they’re relatively inexpensive. All you need is glass to fit the door, the design you like and the kit. So you could totally diy something custom that you’ll love forever for significantly less than purchasing new or vintage.

      I love etching cream, there are so many projects you can do with it. If you have a cricut you can cut vinyl stencils to use with etching cream but I just use an exacto knife on contact paper. Some stores have it locked up with the spray paint because it can be used for vandalism.

Also, I hope you're saving and using those pretty kitchen cabinet handles somewhere else, they look beautiful! When we renovated our kitchen last year that originally was from 1965 we saved the cabinet hardware and re-used them for the new cabinets and I think that detail is my favourite in there now!

    @XOMaCenna great tip if you are reusing doors, go ahead and mark/note and save the the door frames as well if possible. IF the frames are in good use, ESPECIALLY THE TRIM, it will cut down on time and money. It can get pricy having to get all new door frames in a home. TRUST ME. its nice when everything is already there and you just need to move it around. Sometimes you can save it sometimes you can't, just thought it was worth a mention. love to see your progress!

    Amazing effort! Never tackled that much, solo. But did something similar, on a much, much smaller structure from the mid 1800s, dismantling, piece by piece, taking note of how heavy everything is, how to reverse engineer in some respects. (Definitely something gratifying about the demolition process.) Then the weight of everything you haul back in when remodeling. Makes one even more respectful of the force of Mother Nature when she gets angry. Able to blow through, and in seconds, totally destroy a house (all the time and effort that went into creating it).

    the most fun thing for me to think about is how there's a gap between the progress being made over there and the footage of that progress being uploaded here, so I keep thinking who knows WHAT stage this all is currently going through in real time! The guest cottage could be actively being built right now and we just don't see it yet! Idk why, but it's fascinating to me to think what's going on far away from me in the world at the present moment. I probably say this all the time, but I'm so excited for you!! I hope things are going well, whatever stage of the process you are going through right now!
