Some exterior paint and the sheetrock going in!
Quite a bit of progress has occurred in the last few weeks. The first house (916) has gotten the windows and skylights in, the siding finished, the roof on, and is now in the process of being painted. Saving the old siding where possible means lots of labor for preparing it to be painted so that it blends with the new siding on the new part of the house. I think it's worth it to not waste old wood - tryin' to be green here!
The view from the back of 916. I think the balcony coming out from the master bedroom is pretty cool. It will have a city skyline view once the landscaping is done right.
There has been good progress inside too! The sheetrock is hung and will be finished within a few days. This shot shows the livingroom with the exposed brick fireplace - still to be repaired. The loft is visible at the top, with the master bedroom beyond that.
This is a view from the kitchen looking back towards the livingroom. The area under the stairs gets the washer and dryer.
Here is the upstairs master bedroom - looking at the bathroom door straight ahead, with the closed door opening over to the left, then the door to the balcony.
