August 30, 2021 – Myra, WI – The renovation of the property created in 1850 on Decorah Street in Myra, WI is full. It was a labor of love and insanity in accordance to contractor Jerry Zelenka.
In 1965 the movie The Agony and the Ecstasy was introduced about Michelangelo’s obsession to comprehensive the painting of Sistine Chapel ceiling, as it became all-consuming he is pushed shut to madness.

I now know how he felt. About the final 5 months our restoration of the 171-12 months-old residence in Myra has turn out to be all consuming. Functioning 7 times a week in some cases 10 several hours a day this has come to be personalized and for a reworking contractor that is in no way a good thing.
Any form of a finances was rapidly thrown out the window (all new) in favor of what the home “needed.”
While we understood sure issues had to be accomplished, heating electrical, plumbing etc.
Other matters, skip coat plaster on the walls, glass block window, stable cherry posts and rails, refinished hardwood floors (walnut?) and hickory kitchen area cupboards with dwell edge tops, stain glass windows, just Experienced to be carried out.
There was no other alternative but to install a clawfoot black-and-white tub in the downstairs rest room and ceramic tile shower and Cambria countertop in the upstairs.
And who wouldn’t put in antique light fixtures in many rooms and custom made manufactured foundation and casing all around windows and doors. There was simply no alternative about the Chestnut laminate floors in the kitchen and eating room and never even get me started off on paint colours for the walls and ceilings. This has turn out to be much more a function of art then a remodeling job.
Fortuitously, my associate John and my spouse Rebecca have been equipped to reign me in from time to time and mainly because of them we WILL be marketing the household starting September 1, 2021 (As long as the purchasers are worthy).
All in all it was a grand obsession and we relished each moment of it (other than the heat, the humidly, the mosquitos and the aches and pains nightly) And I search ahead to the next (significantly-smaller sized project)
