Some intermediate shots coming, but here's a couple recent ones

Update 01Dec06

The plaster walls are up, the bathroom is being tiled in slate, plus finishing up the outside.

Update 06Dec06 Update 10Dec06 Update 12Dec06 Update 18Dec06

The fixtures in the new bathroom are all installed, and the old one cut out. Windows are trimmed and the main task remaining is to install the shower door. After 9 weeks of doing without, we have a washer & dryer again.

Update 21Sep07

Progress has been slow on the remaining items because we're both pretty burnt out on the house right now. But a couple things have been accomplished. More than what you see here but this is what I have pictures of.
