Pre-permit demo almost complete

The non-structural demo is almost complete now. This is the beginning of the stage I love. You can really see what the place is going to look like. There is also no turning back now! We found a couple of treasures in the wall last week. Photo negatives, a little carved boat, a booklet, an old toffee container, a signed menu from Child's Restaurant, lots of newspaper from 1920-1921, and (to my 9 year old's sheer delight!) a little hidden staircase. It's all so much fun to imagine the life this house had before us.

  1. I'm always so fascinated by finding objects: it's such a neat view into the house's history. I can't wait until we gut our bathroom and kitchen because there has to be some neat stuff in there... you know, like a sack of money. ;)
