Seeing the Gatehouse nearly empty (there were more things still in it than I was expecting) was a little sad today. Seeing the newly painted floors up close, it is clearly only subflooring that remains, not the original plank floor – so my disappointment at the choice to paint the floors is very moderated by that fact. We had just gotten out of the car when a local couple stopped by – they were interested in the house! After a brief tour, they didn't seem put off by the age and condition of the house, but we'll see what develops.
