We’ve gotten so caught up in our stories lately that we’ve forgotten to give you the cold, hard, photographic proof of the progress on the renovation. I was just going through our iPhoto library and discovered dozens of photos we haven’t been keeping you up to date on. Three major phases are complete, and the next three posts will show them all: framing, insulation, and drywall.
First, the framing. According to the date stamp on these photos, this phase was complete as of September 30.
The framed out kitchen, with the pantry in the foreground and the half-bath behind it.
The living room, with new stairs and new framing for wall.
View from bottom of stairs into office and kitchen.
Future site of our full upstairs bathroom.
This is the master bedroom. The framing for the wall only goes up to the height of where the ceiling used to be to give the finished room a loft-like, open and airy feel.
Our bedroom closet will go here, a nice walk-in sized closet where the house’s only, tiny bathroom used to be.
Framing for the sleep loft that will be above the bathroom, where the attic used to be.
Some old sheet music we found in the basement. When we move the piano in, I’ll learn how to play it!
Our pretty, original floor grate in the upstairs hall.
