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!

What a difference a day makes
Now this project is showing some major progress! Workers put up all the trusses and were still sheathing when I drove by a little while ago. Nice to know we shouldn't have to worry about any rain this weekend. Next week we should see the front porch come together and hopefully by then we'll have our siding picked out. We're still deciding between a few options. The outline of the house is coming together. I'll post some pics from the inside later. There's no interior walls on the 2nd floor so its one giant empty space at the moment.
