Yay! We have our permit to begin construction!
The old silver storm door is gone. Eventully we will have the original front door refinished. We also have a new full view glass storm door ready to go. We had actually ordered it before the fire and was due to have it installed the day of the fire. The guy showed up with it while we were sitting waiting for the board guy to come and board up the house. Ironic.
Our first peek at the original siding of the house. I have been itching to look for a while. I finally convinced David to rip up a section. We found thin white wood clapboard. It looks like it is pretty good shape.
The beginings of the dormer tear off.
The the plaster in the foyer and living room has been removed. The remaining lath has been painted with Killz. The wallpaper in the dining room is on its way down.
The kitchen is being gutted.
The upstairs has been completely gutted and painted with Killz. From the attic eaves you can now see the downstairs since the ceilings are gone in the kitchen, living room, and foyer.
Trash, lots and lots of trash.
