Our contractor’s crew begins this week. So this weekend our crew got to work with demolition of the interior walls. It’s such a shame to see it all go. All that work. Laths nailed by hand into place. Hundreds. Thousands.
And century-old plaster. And real paper wall papers.
But all must make way for new wiring, heating, and plumbing. For walls with fresh plaster and paint. The millwork will be preserved and restored, denuded of paints and shellac. Floors will be carefully stripped, smoothed and revived.
But for now, all is rubble and dust, and heat.
