The Bright House on Holloway

Bright indeed!

I had forgotten that the big yellow house on Holloway was named the Bright House in the original historic district research until I went to close out the tax credit application this week.  And it’s an appropriate name too, as the light streaming in those windows make the house so sunny and lovely.  The family decided to do most of the finishing touches themselves, so as of last week they moved in with lots to do.  My final photos barely convey the space, especially as it was a grey day when I showed up to snap pictures, but the homeowner’s blog has reams.  She’s kindly offered to let me snag some for here, so here’s a little sneak peak.

The dining room with a view into the living room – I love the beadboard ceilings that run through the front of the house.

The blog also does a great job of documenting all that they’ve been through – for those contemplating a massive remodel. I am really looking forward to visits in the future when they’ve buttoned up all the last bits – it’s beautiful already, and will certainly be gorgeous in the end!

The single original newel post left in the house has been reinstalled at the base of the stairs – matching newels were made and have been installed on the second floor.
