Construction, House and Acreage Restoration

Light Returns to the First Floor

IMG_2073

The first floor has been boarded up with plywood for the majority of the summer. You don’t really want to put on a roof and do all this building with windows placed in your house. Because you don’t want to accidentally break said windows.

So it’s been dark in there. In fact, in the videos you have seen me take, it’s been hard to get good pictures of what is happening without the light.

We started putting in windows and doors downstairs, so the light is returning. And boy does it make a world of difference! The new windows are slightly larger than the house originally had.

Sunlight just really makes a place feel like home.

The back of the house (west side) I always forget to take pictures from this direction. You can almost see the HUGE window opening for the upstairs.
