we just got into the house 7 days ago....and it begins already! FIRST project....the slate roof that's 85 years old...which is sitting over the original wooden shakes...CRAZY! it leaks, so needs to be replaced before we can start on anything inside of the house...
|dumpster and scaffolding all set up to rip the roof off this wknd!|
here are a few 'before' photos...i'm going to try and document the process throughout the restoration!
|kitchen...updated sometime in the 60's it looks like|
|full bath....love the radiator in there to hang your towel on while you bathe!|
|not 'original' to the house...but antique and the only light fixture in the house that is somewhat original. this will stay!|
|all of the ceilings and most of the walls have layers of wallpaper and cracking plaster|
|GORGEOUS wainscoting going up the stairs...this will definitely stay!!|
|a beautiful built-in in the living room...i can see a pop of color on the back wall of it!|
|amazing original woodwork through out the entire house|
|the little half bath under the stairs! love it!|
|here she is.....beautiful porches...peaks and detail! she'll clean up nicely :)|
