Making Progress!

In the past week, the ceilings have come out of the kitchen and living room, which have exposed a roof/attic in very good shape. Also, the chimney has been torn out of the kitchen, the walls of the butler's pantry have been removed, and the doorway in the second bedroom has been moved (to prepare for the future addition). We have decided on a great layout for the addition that utilizes all available space of the existing house and minimizes wasted space in hallways. We'll even have a small laundry room on the main floor, which will be nice. We are going to turn in our application for the Historic Resource Commission on Tuesday, to get on the agenda for their August meeting - approval of addition plans are necessary since we are in the historic district. All is on track for the rehab to be done by October 1, with the addition to begin shortly thereafter...

been opened up... A shorter wall/breakfast bar will be
added back in its place... (Looking towards kitchen)
