demo, Discoveries, remodeling Peeling back history 20 June 2015 Steve With the drywall down, the insulation out, demo continues to reveal the history of the house … Ghost image of a former closet painted on the decking, closet removed by a previous homeowner in a previous remodel. Previous homeowner added this door in the upstairs hallway, to create a master suite when they combined two bedrooms. The framers did not remove the drywall; they just nailed over it. What is this oversized pencil in the wall between the kiddie bath and master bath? This was a door into a bathroom. It was apparently taken out and the wall closed off in order to create a master bath. The irony is, Steven and Jacquela are putting a door at almost exactly this location, to create a laundry/utility room — we are again returning the house to its original footprint. Share. Link. Like.
