The stairs as well as the upstairs have all been framed. We had originally wanted to do these quaint attic bedrooms, but the ceilings were just going to be too low, so we opted to do a full on second story (as well as all new electrical and plumbing!). We did recycle the pine rafters and we'll use those as flooring. We got a sample back from the mill shop and they turned out beautifully. They are putting up the siding this week as well as they leveled the floors in the hall (bad addition - uneven floors, uneven ceiling, etc had to be repaired). They ripped out the floor for the mud room (good thing we didn't just leave the original bathroom - would have most likely fallen through the floor eventually). No big.
Matilda loves going up into her room and I take the girls here as little as possible. It's a serious construction zone. That picture, bottom right, is the framing for our new fireplace. We've always wanted one and that hole, well the hole freaks me out. Again, why I don't take the girls there often.
We met with a team member of the renovators we'll be using to help us in the kitchen. We've decided to do an IKEA kitchen. Any of you do that in a renovation? I think we're going with the ADEL cabinets. I like the shaker look. I'm also going a little outside the box on the hardware. Excited about that.
