On to house #2! The new challenge: take a 1953, 2400 sq. ft. ranch house in Arlington, VA and turn it into a two-story, 4800 sq. ft. Craftsman style house. After spending four years from start to finish on the first house, we're hoping to finish this one in 2 to 3 years instead. Back to construction zone living!

The amended plans were approved and work continued today. They started extending the chimney in preparation for the new 2nd story. The bricks don't match exactly but we're going to paint them to match the siding. The new retaining wall should start going up tomorrow and hopefully they'll be able to get some work done before the rain comes.
