When we bought the old house, it was a boarding house. The front porch was the entrance to 2 of the apartments and the stairs. The door on the right led into apartment 1 known as mean lady and naked girls room. The middle door led to apartments 3 and 4 on the 2nd floor.
This door led to apartment 2 also known as the “druggies” apartment. Sorry for the names but COME ON!!! Look at the locks on the door.
One by one the doors have been removed and closed up to either create a wall (druggies apartment door) or to create a new front door. Yeah!!!! The gentleman in this picture is our city inspector. He signed off on the insulation yesterday. We like him:)see the stairs ? Today they will no longer be there. They are being removed and relocated. No longer will you have to walk around the staircase. No longer will they be the first thing you see as you walk in. No longer will you feel like you may plummet to your death as you walk up and have to navigate the weird half step at the top. No longer will you feel as if you need a shower if you have had to touch them in any way. Ok you get it. I hate those steps.
One more day of putting plywood over the front door opening. I promise you won’t be disappointed. I can hardly stand the suspense .
Today the drywall is being loaded in. Monday we will begin to have real walls. The old house is really coming together.
