Daddy's sexy new pump jacks.

Emon putting up new ceiling joists above a bathroom on the second floor. I see your hard hat. Where are your safety goggles, sir?

We have put the stairs back and they are even reasonably level. There will be a powder room under the stairs for me and Winston to go powder our noses in. My dad will be turning matching spindles where we are missing some. I have yet to inform him of this newly assigned duty.

Fat Mike, the world's best plumber, is measuring the basement he is digging for us. The basement, under the new addition, is the one room in the entire house that I have been given any design authority over.

The pressure treated 5/4 decking and jack-leg support structure underneath has been removed. Inside, more flooring, joists, walls and headers are being installed.

Plans for modifications and replacement addition are almost complete. Without Tom Merrigan and Scott Harmon at Center City Architecture, we would have never been able to take the project on. They are amazing!

Standing in the upstairs foyer and looking down over the dining room. Fire damaged and rotted floor joists and flooring removed.

Looking down from old upstairs bathroom, piping that carried gas to the original gas lamps can be seen.

Looking west from above the parlor and down at the new floor joists for the master bedroom. Joists meet over central wall.
Standing in front parlor and looking up and west. New wood is floor joist for master bedroom. Central wall was not salvageable.
Photo shows south wall and east facing wall (front). 1/2-inch CDX plywood will be covered with building wrap and the German wood siding will be re-installed.
