Bedroom Walls

Interior walls framed

The second floor interior walls are going up. The left side of the photo will be the east wall of our daughter’s bedroom and the wall to the far right of the photo will be a bathroom wall. You can see the original plumbing that was left during demolition. New fixtures will connect to these, thus saving on some plumbing costs.

Second floor bathroom Wall

In both photos you can see that the floor has some framing. The addition to the house put on in the 1960s didn’t have the floor levels matching. Matt has made up for that difference (and the general lack of level in an old house) by adding some structure to the floor. If you look carefully in the first photo, you can see where we’ll be running ductwork for the kitchen exhaust hood. I’m very much looking forward to being able to get cooking steam out of my kitchen!

It is sort of a shame to carve up that nice big second floor. It is so spacious with good views from any vantage point. However, as a family we are getting tired of so much togetherness and some divisions of space (with doors!) will be quite welcome. Plus: TWO full bathrooms!
