Alzada Magdalena, Licensed Acupuncturist
Those who know me, know that I love to rehabilitate buildings as well as people. When not doing acupuncture, I enjoy taking an old run down building and turning the years back so that it becomes beautiful and functional again. I am happy with a hammer or paint brush in hand. It is a relaxing counterpoint to healing work with people.

I am going to finish the office before seeing patients again - it just did not work out having people come to my house. Too much sickness and no way to contain the risk to my family. If you are an established patient, and are taking herbs, I can make up your herbs and leave them outside the door. There are many solutions to common problems, so feel free to call me on the phone and we will troubleshoot problems together.
We loved this little building when we walked in. It will have space for an herb room and a treatment room.
It is best for optimists to marry each other! That way there is always someone to encourage you when the project is long.
Believe it or not, this was a selling point. Both of us had always wanted to to refinish a wood floor. Why not a whole houseful of them?
That sanding step is really a series of sanding steps...more like massaging the whole house over and over with sandpaper.
Matt Smith replastered all the walls. What an amazing difference. He does it all by hand.
It took some research and work, but it looks great.
50 years of thickly applied, drippy paint!
Steven not only puts paint on, he takes it off too! He is equally meticulous whether sanding and prepping, or painting. More photos when we are done.
This and other great questions are best answered with a pry bar. The answer to" why do the tiles fall off the wall?" is also best answered with more pry bar activity.
Very large, very heavy. We could not lift it at all. Apparently it had been built in place when the house was built...
Ellis left me alone with the sledge hammer one day.
Sheer destruction is! Fun, too.
More photos when I get further along. I did not take enough pre-photos of the awful paint and texture that was on the walls, and I have to get some post photos of the now plastered and painted walls.
