Behind These Walls

Just wanted to give you a quick update on some of the
progress we have made in the Provision!
At this point about 90% of the walls and ceilings
that are coming down....
are down and most of the new walls
have gone up!

Before and Durings!

Living Room- Before
Living Room - During
We removed the walls, ceilings, and
fireplace surround
in this room! 
We also decided to remove the arch in between the
living room and great room!
In doing this we were able to create a wider
opening which will take advantage of both the
front view and rear views!

Great Room

Great View- Before
Great Room- During
Our contractors removed the back windows and doors,
The wall was then re framed  for the new windows and
french doors.  Since they had not yet come in, our
contractors nailed the odd and end doors to the openings!
Here is the view from the outside!

Master Bedroom

Master Bedroom- Before
Master Bedroom- During
All the walls and old closet were removed in this room!
(We still have the ceiling to demo.)
Our contractors have also framed for our new window
in this room!  This room only had one small window!
We can't wait till this wall is removed and the
new window installed!
The new window will go here and like the windows in the great room
will overlook the back yard!
Our Back Yard!

This room is now framed for the new powder bath!


Madison's Room
During- Part 1
During- Part 2
We knew that we had to remove the old closet
and tiny bathroom.
What we didn't count on was the horrible smell,
that didn't go away until....
we removed the ceiling and discovered a
Huge..... raccoon's nest in the rafters!
This was the original entrance to the secret room located
off Madison's room.
Madison decided to make this her walk-in-closet,
so our wonderful contractors created a new
entrance and framed up the walls
to be drywall ready!

The wall dividing the kids landing room and Zac's bedroom,
has also been built!
When removing the walls in the downstairs bathroom,
we came across this
writing on the wall!
If we are able to keep the stud,
I will be adding the new remodel to the list!
Since we have been busy inside,
Our orchard was not sprayed in time to ward off
the insects or whatever causes the brown spots.
We do have one pear tree that is spot free,
and it has been so much fun to watch them grow!

I hope to have more to share this week!
Stairs have been flipped and windows are
getting installed!

I am linking to Metamorphosis Monday
over at Between Naps On the Porch!
Have a wonderful week!

What a transformation!
How cool that you came across those messages. When we remodeled our kitchen {1992} we put a family photo in the wall with a message and "before" photos.
