Here's some "very before" and "where we are now" pictures as we keep moving
forward on renovating the 98 year old Bonner Street house.
|Since September, there's been a white cloud of plaster dust rising from the house |
every weekend as walls & ceilings come down.
|We've already filled three dumpsters with plaster, lathe, |
some walls & materials coming down in the reno.
|Work by our contractor, Greg Graber, started in the back of the first floor.|
This is the original back porch.
|and this is what it looks like today -- walls replace screen & a mudroom is being created.|
|The kitchen when we bought the house in September.|
|The area looking into the kitchen; closed in by a wall & narrow door.|
|The kitchen now -- the old flooring was taken up to reveal original maple hardwood floors &|
the opening is widened to allow for more flow between the diningroom & kitchen.
|the original diningroom,|
|the diningroom today.|
|Just inside the front door originally.|
|wall down & more open front entrance way.|
|Downstairs master bedroom before. (see the door to the left which goes out to the porch.)|
|the master bedroom today; door to the porch now framed up to allow for a closet to the left of the fireplace.|
|master bathroom before.|
|master bathroom today; total gutting & adding about 4 feet into a narrow hallway.|
We're making progress.
