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!

Two steps forward...or maybe two steps back
Construction continues to move along here, if we define construction as demolition as well as rebuilding. Demo is about done and now the crew is working on putting the house back together, building the new addition, and eventually, building up. We also, fortunately, survived the rain last weekend and during the week. It took a lot of tarps and we've learned more than I wanted to know about controlling water flow and direction but the weather looks pretty good for the next week so we'll keep our fingers crossed that it stays clear and we'll push forward for a second floor - and eventually a roof - soon.
Demo is starting to get a little out of hand
Not much old house left!
But we're starting to make progress with new building!
