Removing layers and layers of paint

I managed to capture some beautiful images after two days of experimenting with sandpaper, chemicals, and a heat gun.

Hanging out at Elise's

A wonderful Christmas with Elise, John, the dogs, and the horses. I also played cribbage for the first time.

A hall is reborn!

Joists were installed today in the hallway.

15 days on

After a bit of a delay, work is underway again at my new house.

Insane ductwork connects to the furnace:

A wall collapse damaged the connection to the furnace flu. A new duct was installed today to keep the carbon monoxide in the flu.

A new footer is poured for the hallway floor to have some support. For almost a month it's been a big hole in the middle of the house with dirt flooring.
