The carpenters were at the house on Monday and were busy working on the sheet rock still. Now they were tackling the ceilings that were in the old part of the house. Do you remember that beautiful wood work that made me want the house in the first place?? The columns divide what we are calling the office and the dining room. They finished the ceiling in the dining room side. It was lots of work.
When we bought the house there was painted ply wood and old plaster with lathes on the ceiling. We took that all down. Only problem, that left a bigger gap just above this room divider. Hubby was at a loss on how to fix it so we had the carpenters put the ceiling in.
They ended up shimming the floor joists which was a lot of extra work but it looks nice and was the right thing to do. They do great work!
They also spent time today prepping for walls were the chimney was.
The office is all ready for sheet rock now which is on their agenda for today.
While I was snapping pictures I took one from my living door towards the kitchen. That little window will be over my kitchen sink.
Oh I love the openness of it all. Every so often I need to step back and remember why I love house….because all to often I see more of this…
and not enough of the features I love.
I am happy to say though that for now, we are done with insulation!!
As always there will be more updates to follow….
