After 15 years — 3,000 stories! — this site has entered a new stage. Today, my focus is on tracking down the latest products for retro remodels. I’m also working to keep existing resource stories up to date so the site remains a solid reference. And, I want to continue to improve the site as an historical reference. To make more time for this research, comments are now closed. Meanwhile: Dive in, there’s lots to read!
