Still in mid renovation. The walls are down. The floors are peeled back, and the original ones are exposed. We are living in a state of civilized chaos. The demolition proved to be some what of an excavation. Many layers of paint and wallpaper, a doll arm, 1980′s baseball cards, and a lot of 100 year old dirt, dust and rubble.
The wall with the bookshelf was was actually a doorway from way back when. You could see the roughed out frame of the old doorway trim from behind the drywall. As you can see in the next photo that wall is now gone.
