Our carpenter was able to get the 2nd floor framing completed before he went on a holiday vacation. This gives us some time to catch up on picking plumbing fixtures and other items needed prior to rough-in on 2nd floor.
We are using the flooring from the original bathroom as replacement boards since this will soon become an outside deck. The old stairs which once came up from the 1st floor kitchen were also removed during demo.
More demo on the house happened since we weren’t able to re-use the old chimneys (they used coal prior) and the openings where one would place a normal firebox for logs did not exisit. You can see how narrow the old brick was while the wall/storage built-in on either side made it appear larger.
