I haven’t posted in a little while, so I actually have two batches of photos to put up. In the first batch, there wasn’t a lot of visible change, except that the house was covered in a giant blue tarp and the ceilings inside are pretty trashed. Most of the labor was put into installing two heavy beams, one north/south and one east/west to attach the floor joists to.  You can see the beam in a couple of the photos, but because the tarps were up and it was dark when I was taking photos.

Where the porch was removed from the house, you can see the color difference from being exposed. The left side was protected and the right side wasn't.  Also, all those little white circles? Spider nests.

The second batch was taken yesterday.  The power went off in my building for a few hours in the afternoon so I took the opportunity to visit the site during daylight.  Here you can see the floor joists going in and the post they installed in the basement to hold up the beams.

    Man…looks pretty serious! When they are done I think you’ll have a bionic house

    Wow, the different layers of brick are amazing. The roof/attic area looks very similar to our house.
