The old tree is gone, and the pool is looking very sorry....
This is the view towards the former kitchen...
Another view showing the demolition of the two rooms south of the Kitchen that are being reclaimed for the extra space, to become an expanded kitchen and adjoining library. If you look closely, you will see that the floor is sloping in the room with the water heater... this used to be a back patio, and was the only part of the former restoration that was not done well, with inadequate foundation work.
Underneath the drywall from the previous restoration, we found original wallpaper! We have saved and collected the best specimens for later use.
This is a view of one of the closets off the master bedroom upstairs, and a view through to the master bathroom. The ceilings here are low, and is something we decided we wanted to change.
This is a view into the attic area adjoining the upstairs walk-in closet where we are going to be expanding to become a guest suite. Everything you see here will be demolished later, and there will never again be a water heater tank in this house.
