Comment on Let’s Build A Shed, Part 1 by The Airstream | The House on Rynkus Hill https://houseonrynkushill.com/2016/11/22/lets-build-a-shed-part-1/#comment-9118 Fri, 31 Jul 2020 12:24:06 +0000 http://houseonrynkushill.com/?p=1945#comment-9118 […] During the pandemic, I’ve been engaged in several various projects around the house. At the end of June I was inspired by a story in a magazine that I subscribe to, The Family Handyman, to think that perhaps we could tackle a really big project – renovating a vintage aluminum travel trailer. It’s a big project, but we have all the skills to do it well. In the end we would have multiple uses for it – set up correctly, we could use it with the kids to go camping and when it’s at our house it can easily be a guest house, in part because I ran plenty of power to our shed.

Comment on 1962 Heritage Perennian Furniture Catalog by Douglas Camin https://houseonrynkushill.com/2014/01/27/1962-heritage-perennian-furniture-catalog/#comment-9007 Thu, 26 Sep 2019 03:59:40 +0000 http://houseonrynkushill.com/?p=748#comment-9007 In reply to Stacie Holden-Rivers.

Stacie – Welcome! They’re scans of the pages, so you could print them. I didn’t sample them down or anything. It is a shame the Heritage did not think to label their pieces with the line name they came from. But perhaps fortunate for people like us that makes it a bit harder to track down and, as a result, not quite as in demand (and priced) like Drexel Declaration (directly comparable in quality and craftsmanship) or Broyhill Brasilia (a more economy piece in its day – lesser veneers and weaker construction.)

Ashley – Sorry, I didn’t notice your comment previously. The items have value. It isn’t crazy like, say, a Drexel Declaration piece, but they are on par with what you would pay for good furniture from a contemporary furniture store. Dining set may be worth $2K, for instance, or the buffet $800-1000.

THANK YOU so much for posting this. I actually called DH in probably 07 when I bought a Perennium set of headboard, 2 nightstands, dresser and mirror. Somehow I lost the email of the copy of the as the woman there sent me and when I called back, they said she had retired but that they received phone calls like mine often.

Is this printable? Thanks again!
