Today was a soggy day with heavy rains limiting all garden activities. So – a good day to work inside. We tackled some more demolition. The once master bedroom of the farm house will (hopefully over the summer) transition into our kitchen area with lovely views of the valley. Today’s project consisted of removing the ceiling. We’ve been curious to see what lies beneath (or, in this case, above it) the layers of paint and drywall. Aside from rodent nests and decades of dirt –

I love the exposed rafters…these are a keeper. Jordan had removed a portion of the plaster when I took this photo. He revealed additional proof that we live in a barn. You can just see, to the left of the window and exposed lattice, vertical white boards. That is our exterior wall. We have no stud walls. The wood you see in front of the white vertical boards are not supporting anything. They were there to have something to secure the drywall to. We have a lot of work to do to create real walls with insulation. A barn. I didn’t expect to live in a barn….but I wouldn’t pass up the experience. I love it.
