If the walls could talk!!

Last night was another great night in recovering the past! Brittany made us a nice dinner,2nd night in a row,and we got right to work! The 1800's Bowmanville sofa got relocated at the top of the grand entrance,and fits perfect on the wall,like it was made to fit there.
Brittany and Cara

Paul tearing up the old repairs,look at those heart pine floors..perfectly preserved!

back staircase where the carpet was removed,a couple orbs going up to bed..I told her this is where she should paint her numbers up the back stairs but she said no,her taste is very dressed up not casual like her aunt :P

Emma HDS Bragg signed the wall upstairs,she was a sister in law to Mark's Grandpa (Bill who still lives on the property with his wife June)

I love demo!

Mark rolling out the old carpet!
upstairs hallway..1950's carpet removed!!
I think the previous owners were smiling down on us seeing the house come back to life,no offense intended to the ones who carpeted that was the thing to do then,it's just time to reveal the homes true character!

sorry the pics are a little out of order this new photo thingy uploaded them all at once....to be continued...

I love seeing all these pics! It's amazing to be able to re-do an old farmhouse! So much work, but so worth it....
