Indiana Project: Unmasking

In the last couple of days the vinyl siding was stripped away entirely. Vinyl was stripped from the soffits to reveal exposed rafter tails. The cedar shakes can see the light of day again.  We found the receipt for the siding job in the house. The vinyl siding was applied in 1980 for $6000.00, materials and labor.

A huge development this week and a total change in plan. We’ve decided to relocate the steps to the basement. Currently the basement door is in the kitchen, inside of a wall that separates the kitchen and the dining room.  This is that wall.

We are going to move the steps in to what was going to be our half bath.  The new basement stairwell will be off the living room.

The kitchen in it’s current state.  The old window was deleted, four new windows have been framed in that will line the exterior wall, you can see the first two.

The place is still pretty torn apart.  It will be exciting to go there this afternoon in hopes that the kitchen wall is gone.
