Progress for this week has really transformed the look of the Brendle house. All the windows have been removed for later use.
It has been decided that the entry porch on the right side of the house is going to be enclosed to become the bathroom. Because the doorway to the back room is in pretty bad shape, it is going to be removed entirely and will be where the shower stall is going to be put.
The two buckets of grancrete have been put on the inside of both porches, and is now used up. Other patches are still visible, but will eventually be covered up with grancrete as well.
The porch on the left is going to be the main entry, and levelling the walls has revealed that this porch is not in sync with the rest of the house. Hmmm...
Beams have been installed in the ceiling, replacing the kinda-sorta boards that really didn't hold up anything. Where it has been possible, the original wood is being incorporated in the restoration. "Splices" can be seen where bad parts have been cut out. The wood that has been removed is stacked against the barn and is serving as a "supply depot" whenever possible.
