Framing: Day 19 and Masonry: Day 7

We were excited to welcome back Heath and his framing crew this morning. They arrived a day earlier than expected to begin their next task:  removing the walls of the existing house to join the new with the old.
With the west wall of the former dining room down, we now have a clearer idea of how the kitchen will lay-out (I say "we" but it's really just me that can't think in 3D. . . ) Eventually, that bathtub will make its way upstairs even though it would make a heckuva kitchen sink. The stud wall at the left of the photo will be the north wall of the kitchen.
The white wall segment in the center of the photo is all that remains of the former nook. It is now known as the east wall of my new pantry!

Meanwhile, upstairs . . . the back wall of the bathroom and the existing hallway are now open to the connector. The new laundry closet is currently occupied by a couple of tubs full of old insulation and broken bits of siding.

So - lots of excitement here at the project site today!

The masons were back, too! The fireplace chimney is creeping taller each day. The framing crew also had to notch out a section of the roof to accommodate the chimney.  

Stay Tuned for Our Next Adventure!
