Back Side

We finally got the scaffolding down and cleaned up a bit around the back side of the dormer. It gives you a good idea of how much brick work we had to do on the wall. For perspective, it’s about 15 feet from floor to the peak. It looks almost like it did when it was built in 1891.

      Being able to see the whole thing at one time sure makes a difference.

      Yes, all the bricks are unique but each one is just another brick in the wall.

      Thanks! We are still struggling with a few areas. We keep reminding ourselves that the poor ole lady has been leaking for years and Rome wasn’t built in a day.

    The attic will be a wonderful place when complete. It’s a space that offers so many possibilities. I think you mentioned that the original owners used it as a billiard room? The brick work and the beams and trusses, lovely.

    Beautiful. I see daylight at the peak. Won’t it leak?

      Good eyes. We haven’t put the flashing on yet. We have to redo the slate on the dormer before we can finish up the flashing though. For the Mooreland House, this leak is infinitesimal. =)
