The front of the house.
The fire started in an electric outlet under the window in the dormer.
I am really fond of the front door of the house, it is original. The day of the fire our new storm door was delivered. We chose a full view glass door so that the front door could be seen from the front of the house. Ironic, huh. The guy showed up with the new door while we were waiting for the guy to come and board up the house. Anyway, the reason for the photo, is the chunk taken out of it. You see, we all went out the back of the house and the firemen came in the front, which was locked. In retrospect, the damage to the door being kicked in was minor, but I still cringed as I watched the fireman's boot hitting the door!
Water damage to the foyer ceiling. The water was coming out the light also.
The windows over the back dormer.
The back dormer room, by the stairs, this room suffered intense heat and smoke damage. The bookshelf in this room is where we were displaying David's vintage Tonka Truck collection. We used that room as a tv room and had a few odds and ends there. I had been thinking of moving those trucks to the basement but I hadn't gotten around to it.
The attic bathroom. It is kind of interesting what the heat does- you can see in varying degrees how both the paint and varnish melted off of the paneling. The light fixtures and vents completely melted away.
These photos are of Jacob and Anna's rooms. There isn't much to say that the photos don't already say. . .
This photo is of the basement floor. The smoke stained everything down there and left perfect outlines on the floor of where things were. This is where an area rug was.
I had more photos that I wanted to share, but evidently I am maxed out for this post. On the main floor we had water and smoke damage. I had a cool photo of the kitchen counter top and the living room ceiling, oh well, I think you get the idea of what happened there, lots of smoke and damaged plaster.
Stay tuned, I have demolition photos up next-
