This is what the dining room /master bedroom looked like on day one. The dining room had been made into the master bedroom in the forty's.

Another view of dining room

After the wall paper and nasty texture had been removed.
The pile of bricks are from the wall that we opened up between the old kitchen and the master bed room/dining room

View of the new archway before the lam beams and support wall were in.
The opening way there from before but had been walled in the forty's. We found it when we started to remove the old wallpaper.

View of the new wall color and what we now call the "HarryPorter closet"
The color is called Rushing River and the trim is Pacer White.

View of the now finished opening looking from the dining room into the family room. We saved the trim that we remover from the doorway that was in the wall that we removed from between the old kitchen and family and were able to reuse it on opening to match then original window and door trim.

Another view of the dining room.

This was the only window that was in the porch when we got the house. This wall is know filled with windows as you will see in the other pictures

Before Pictures of the screen porch

New hardwood floors in what was the old screen porch on the second floor

Fresh painted wall and new light in the old screen porch

Another view

The texture on the wall is called by some people as holey smooth.
I just call it old house wall.

Another view

The old girl is finally getting a new coat (of paint that is)

You just never know what the weather here is going to bring sun one minute rain the next.

After many gallons of paint and much time wasted we've finally landed on the colors of Summit gray and Knitting needles. Summit gray is the body color and Knitting needle the lighter trim. So we ended up back with the two colors that we had started out with, but just in reverse of what we origainally planned on.

We have finished with all the new siding and painting on the garage and the new addition. A very nice feeling to finally have it done. We are planning to move on to the front of the house in the spring.

At last a new post !!!!

Scooby Doo welcomes the new balcony and Halloween to Estelle.
On each side of the lower porch the roof is supported by three 11 inch square columns and one half column at the the rear. These is how the pattern on the cement pad showed that it was originally. We've added a composite deck on top and then the railing to make for a nice place to seat and watch the world go by.
