Wow, your house is a very richly detailed Queen Anne. I'd love to see some pictures that show the color scheme.

Good evening, I just watched your YouTube video again tonight now I have more time. I wanted to tell you how impressed I am with all the work you are doing. I also watched several others you had on there.I hope that's OK. I've got to hand it to you for taking on such a large project. I'm sure it is a larger project than you had anticipated. You are doing a wonderful job and should be very proud of the work you are doing. Keep up the good work. Lair

Hey, I know all about that getting burned out on a project.  It is easy to do when you take on something the size of your undertaking.  When I started this house I did first things first then I took on 1 room at a time.  When I got burned out I would go to a room I had finished and that reminded me it was all worth it.  Thanks for the compliment on the divider in the parlor.  When I bought the house it was one large room.  Under the carpet I founds where the wall had been.  Once I got the wall back up I hated it.  It was 2 little rooms and both seemed dark.  Then I cut holes in the wall to let light in and open the rooms.  I had to look through a lot of Victorian Home mags. to find just how I wanted to finish it off. I made all the trim and the fretwork myself.  I think it fits with the house but it wasn't originally there.  Lair

This is amazing work--great eye for detail. Amazing, too, that our stories are so similar! Thanks for visiting -- we really want to see more of your house! Best wishes, Ron

The work you have done is AMAZING! My husband and I are about to embark on our first restoration project and are so excited to start. We are a bit overwhelmed, though, at where to start. Where did you find the fantastic photographs of the original house that you worked from?

I don't know how this friend thing works so you may want to help me out a bit.

The 3 lights I have are solid brass that I acquired while restoring my home in Newport, Kentucky.  It began as a curiosity and developed into a hobby.  By the time I was done I had the largest private collection of working gaslights outside of Louisville.  The utility light is fairly simple but the other two are much more complex.  All are original from the Cincinnati/Newport area.  One came out of the Mimosa Mansion in Covington, KY, the other was original to "my old KY home".  However, I did not leave them for the new owner because they had indicated they were going to electrify them and at the time I couldn't bear to see that happen.  I'm now in a different venue and have no application for them except to pass them over to someone who can use them for their "old house".  None have any embossed names or symbols on them.  I have completely restored and lacquered them so they are working gaslights, complete with 100 year old globes (not reproductions) and gas nozzles.  The utility light and the 4 arm is a combination gasolier electrolier - a feature you have probably already discovered looking over the one you have in the house.  If you would like to talk about these lights you can reach me via email at "".

Great work! I wish our progress went as quickly. I love your light in the foyer!!! I wish I could find one similar to that.

Your quality of work never ceases to amaze me. You guys are very talented!

I stumbled on this website and your project.  I had heard about it form Steve some time ago, as we are both in the antiques business.  We sold him an eastlake fireplace surround, I thought for you project.  The work, and your research are looking great.  I hope we get a chance to see the fruits of your labor some time in the future.  

Best regards,

Doug and Lisa Baldwin

Having reviewed your photos, I noticed that you have period lighting fixtures.  I am in need of  a ceiling light fixture with at least a 38" horizontal span.  A brass gas or combo gas electric style reproduction would be appropriate for the period.  Would you have any suggestions for a vendor regarding good quality and price?  Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
