I’ll be thinking of you swinging that mallet 🙂 Best wishes on a smooth remodel!

What a magnificent building, and it has gone condo! Another one to add to my LA Downtown fantasy “where would I like to live?” list.
Happy new kitchen renovating!
You caught me! I posted this picture last year when I was renovating/restoring the kitchen – but I loved it so much I had to post it again.
The building is BEAUTIFUL. Add me as your neighbor in your “LA Downtown fantasy where I would like to live list” 😉
So how is your beautiful kitchen? Have you posted on that?
