2nd floor progress report
One thing we had to add to our project was leveling the dining room ceiling. Over the years, the posts supporting the building deteriorated (which is why we replaced them) and this led to the ceiling sagging. We lifted the building about 1/2" but this did not fix the ceiling in the 2nd floor.
So we decided to have our crew correct it.
The drywall is coming along nicely. They expect to be finished by this week.
This is a view from the dining room to the kitchen.
Below is where the stained glass windows will go.
Here's the main bedroom closet (small) and nook for a dresser.
We added many small details.
*blocking for a wall safe
*blocking for flat screen TV
* speaker wiring in the walls in the living room & kitchen
*blocking for art pieces
*wiring for additional lighting.
*and of course, all the original wood trim....
I'd say we are 98% finished with the old wood now. I have some plynth blocks to sand that I finished stripping on Sunday and 2 sections of coffered ceiling to stain.
Then it's onto the new wood.
