not long before we started the restoration, jeff smith, tucson photographer extraordinaire, was kind enough to take some more before shots for us. not only are they gorgeous, but i love how they capture the romance of the house’s decay–the whole thing that drew us to the house in the first place. part of me would like to just live in it this way–peeling paint and dirt floors and all. sigh.
