updates, progress, and family time!

a quick update:

This weekend was a flurry of activity at the house.  Polly's parents, Helen and Con had arrived from Australia on Wednesday, and we put them straight to work!  The mason finished the tuck-pointing, and I began the cleanup and prep work for the next phase--the framing.  Which is possible, because we were approved by the DOB!  If you are interested, here is the main link to the documents on the NYC DOB site.  More info than you can ever imagine...

Finally, we signed with BLUE GREEN RED, LLC to handle the construction permit, plumbing and electrical contractors, and consulting with us on the build-out and design.  Salem Darrow is now our General Contractor (GC).

Con helps out with the painting

Tuck-pointing complete--as complete as it is going to get...

Lintel repair complete

drywall hung in back room--now painted and complete
Backyard-view from 1st floor-all cleaned up and planted.  Note the bricks along the back fence and the plants along the left--all thanks to Helen (and Con, but mostly Helen) Dirt spot in center is where we dug up a slate stone, part of an old path, then reseeded.
