stage1 (year 1): The first part of our demolition...where we pull a little off here...
and there to see what we THINK we will be dealing with. (LOL!)
don't forget.... we turned a closet into a bathroom!
Reloacted walls...And left some out all together!
And of course...let us not forget...ripped out a 100 year old chimney...
brick by brick!
Tore off and rebuilt a garage that my Grandfather had hauled in on a truck...and reconstructed the year
I was born!
we DID know what we were doing...(Well, it all looked good on paper!)
And NO...we would not do this again.... but are glad we did at the same time.
Figure that one out and when you do...come tell me!
In the next few weeks...
I thought I would take you on a tour...
Room by room.
So that you can see...what it once was...
what had to be done...
and what it is or will be.
We are only just beginning to put things back...
And it is slow going.
Remember...we are doing it ALL BY OURSELVES.
We call in the pros only to check and inspect. The plumber and electrician are both good friends of ours.
So they do alot of hand holding and cheering from the sidelines.
So...if your interested in seeing how we took a 158 year old house...flipped it around on the inside and are slowly bringing it back to life...come back soon! And often!
Just remember to...
At least upstairs...It's comfy and cozy!
There are places to sit...sleep...
AND IT"S REALLY COMPLETED!
Yes...I know I have told you this already...
I am simply telling myself...again
I sometimes walk up here...just to see for myself.
The light at the end of the tunnel!
See ya soon! I am mudding drywall in my soon to be utility room this weekend!
I hope each of you have a Blessed Easter Weekend.
Thanks for stopping by!
