Renovations pt.2

Spent about 9 hours working on the renovations yesterday. 4:30-1:30 (yeah, we keep odd hours).

Still plenty to do before the finishing work begins, including but not limited to: electrical, flooring, window and door installation.

Here are a few more shots to show the newest changes.

The first span in place between the dining room and the living room.
Same as above shot from the west entrance to the kitchen.

After removing the small wall between the kitchen and dining room. Vertical studs are support so the roof doesn't fall down. =]

Second span is in place between the kitchen and dining room. That span is about 165" long (almost 14'). Both spans are sandwiched LVL (laminated veneer lumber) 9.5" wide by 1.5" deep. They are heavy and it took quite a bit of ingenuity to get these with only two people.
Same as above, from the NW corner of the kitchen.

More to come.
