This is a quickie web page showing some of the work we're doing on our 1889 Victorian in Hudson, MA.
The before & after link got buried in the middle, so here it is: before, after, and after some more: Compare the start & finish shots
First coat of color is done (for some value of done)
Wrapped up for the year
This years project is redoing the clapboards on the south wall of the house, plus installing a new window in place of the two in the kitchen as part of a kitchen remodel.The existing kitchen:
There are a bunch of pics to come of the in between, but to cut to the chase, here's the finished view:
Time to finally tackle the third floor of the front.
Skipping ahead a bit to the end.
This year, we're putting on an addition on the back of the house, expanding the existing 1 story bumpout back, and up to the 3rd floor
Today they took out the old hip & valley framing, opening up the space into the new 3rd floor area. The roof sheathign was finished and the shingling started.
Much has happened in the last month. The exterior is 99% finished. Interior framing is done, plumbing & electrical rough in is done.
Some intermediate shots coming, but here's a couple recent ones
The plaster walls are up, the bathroom is being tiled in slate, plus finishing up the outside.
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.
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.
