I haven’t posted an update on the house lately simply because most of the work being done was not particularly apparent in photos (plumbing, electrical, etc). Also because things are behind schedule. Now that we’ve moved passed the first rough-in inspection, drywall is starting to go up and the walls smoothed out, closing off former doorways and fireplaces. It’s startling how much of a difference it makes to have the living room, spare room, and master bedroom closed off as separate rooms. Soon drywall will go up in the kitchen and bathroom as well. It’s beginning to not feel like an empty shell but an actual home. I can envision our furniture in place, art on the walls. These photos aren’t exactly exciting, and clearly there’s a lot more to do, but I’m happy there is progress.
living room: former doorway on the right now closed off
living room: fireplace covered up, there will be a wall of shelves from ISS Designs along here
doorway into kitchen, from the dining room, an old telephone nook used to be to the right and is now closed off
spare room: fireplace covered up and doorway on the left (that used to lead into the master bedroom closet) closed off
spare room: doorway (that used to lead into the living room) closed off
master bedroom: bones of the recessed shelving plus some neat contraptions to reach the ceiling
master bedroom: (tiny) closet no longer has a door to the spare room and fireplace is covered up, which makes the room feel much bigger
walls in the hallway are coming along nicely
laundry room windows
bones of the laundry room closet, new doorway/windows leading to the porch on the left
Hopefully there’s a lot more to post about soon!
