Good morning! I was thinking about the blog I posted yesterday while I was finishing up my permit application (that's right Steve...I am turning it in today!) and remembered that I did not attach the pics of the master bedroom or its bathroom "before" I started the remodel. So...here they are. You should be able to see from the fotos the beautiful crystal chandelier, the flocked wall paper, the marble sink with iron legs, the lead glass windows, the beautiful wood floors, the cedar closet, and lots of "stuff" left behind for me to sift through! When looking at the foto with the chandelier, you may be able to see how the ceiling and dropped from the weight of the light and the roof. That is the area that we had to jack up and reinforce so that it would not cave in. You can also see that the fireplace is completely covered up by plaster and wall paper. (Well...not any more!)
Hey...one fun fact that I just learned from Howard Ayers, Jr....all of the wall, floor and ceiling joists/beams are made from black walnut. I knew they were not oak but I was not sure what tree they were made from...now I know. Black walnut. Can you even buy black walnut anymore?
I also have a question for anyone out there that might be able to help. Does anyone know someone who has the ability and knowledge to clean crystal chandeliers?
