Restoration Is Well Underway

Here is a glimpse of the restoration work being done. I will be there soon to take updated photos and I do know that the roof will soon be coming off. As mentioned all windows and doors will be refinished inside and out. The tall windows and door on the face of the home are now sanded on the exterior. The interior has not been worked on yet. As you can see the door is open, that is probably the first time in at least 5 years that it has been opened. 
More work has been completed since these pics were taken several days ago. 
As you can see in the kitchen photo there are 2 outlets on the wall in the lower right of the pic. The first outlet looking in is where the refrigerator was plugged in and it would have covered it. You will also notice the cabinet that looks like the refrigerator would go inside. Well that is the intent anyway. This is however where the stove was located. The counter was extended to cover where the refrigerator was along with the wall mounted shelving. (More photos of the kitchen will be posted later) The counters are cement and are newer. They were done several years ago and to the best of my knowledge have never been used.

  1. It is wonderful to see our old house being restored! The terrace windows look lovely. The kitchen definitely is different from when we lived in it; cupboards filled the wall over the sink and 'fridge, which was as you say, to the right of the sink. I don't know who put that nasty roof over the patio, and it's good to see it gone. Thank you for bringing this house back to life! -Laurel Eppstein
