Pics from the Valley

Here are some pics to go with the previous post...

View from the rear forward into the Living Room, through what used to be a partition wall, builtin shelves/desk, and hidden brick chimney.

View from the same rear corner, sideways to where there's no longer a closet.  Actually, the beam above and post in the center delineate what was probably once the rear wall of the house - everything to the right appears to have been added later.

Ceilings running side-to-side in the ex-Library part.  New framing under the bathroom at the far-right.

Ceilings running to the front, with a mysterious box in the middle that I am guessing was a heat register when there was just a wood stove downstairs (later plastered into the ceiling).

From the front outside corner, toward the rear-middle.

Side wall, down to studs.  Apparently no insulation in this room - have to fix that.

Exposed closet under the staircase, which had been walled in.  Also the center-hall (still with a sheet of plastic across it for dust control) out to the front entry, which we re-opened by demolishing the closet someone put there.

In the center-call area, probably the oldest decoration we've uncovered.  Seems to be a couple feet's worth of wainscotting below, and old wallpaper on plaster above.  Was walled in to the back of the closet.

Top of the wainscot, with moulding/nosing.

Wallpaper detail.

A different border/trim on the wallpaper.
