Whew—there was a house under there!
Let’s do the grand tour again minus all the junk.

If you can’t see the potential yet, check back with us in about six months…the rest of you may keep reading 🙂

We plan to make only minimal structural changes, but before we can really start the renovation, all the plaster must go. We’ve made this decision for multiple reasons: the house needs to be rewired, replumbed and reinsulated, so obviously we would have to punch a lot of holes in the walls to accomplish those things, the plaster is not in perfect condition as it is, and sheetrock is preferable for hanging artwork, etc. later in the game. Saving the plaster would be more trouble than it’s worth.

We’ve got our stash of sledgehammers polished and ready…
As soon as we get our permit from the city, all demo will break loose! We plan to try to save all the beautiful woodwork (floors, built-in bookcases, molding and trim work), but the plaster is history. So take one last look—soon we will kiss these walls goodbye and say hello to all the studs underneath (wink, wink).
