Taking shape.....

The weather has continued to cooperate and tremendous progress has been made. The crew has completed construction of the roof, interior walls, and demolished old exterior walls of the house. All of the old windows were successfully saved and will be integrated into the new building...not that we wanted them, but this helped to pacify the Historic Resource Commission. They do look nice...and the sunsets over Mt. Pisgah are an added bonus! If only we could build an observation deck on top....

This a view of the back of the house. Three of the original windows were used here. The fourth will be used in the "mud room" area.

This is a view of the remodeled sun room that will now become a laundry room and walk in closet. The area adjacent to the casement windows will serve as the closet. The door leads into the existing middle bedroom.

This is a view from the new bedroom looking into the new bathroom. The shower walls have also been constructed. The windows were designed to allow natural light in while maintaining privacy.

As the framing is almost complete, we expect to have plumbing underway sometime next week. We'll be back at Lowe's picking out paint colors before we know it!
