Week 9 Progress Pics

So it’s been 9 weeks since the renovation began and 6 weeks since my last update. (I know… I’m slacking.) There’s been a great deal of progress on the house. Also, the architect plans are complete, the contractor got to take a vacation, and some decisions have been made on materials… at least in our minds.

  • Load-bearing wall removal: COMPLETE!
  • New floor framed in to cover old staircase location: COMPLETE!
  • Second floor bathroom floor/kitchen ceiling: COMPLETE!
  • New floor opening for staircase location: STARTED!

Here’s what it looks like walking in through the front door. The new staircase will begin about 10 feet after the end of the vestibule. There’s still no staircase to the other floors, so no easy way up or down for additional pictures.

This week will entail a good deal of trash removal and a relatively accessible house for a walk-through with the contractor. It’s starting to shape into the vision!
