We finally did enough prep work that we can start getting the drywall and plaster off of the ceiling. It’s amazing how much work we have to do to reach the ceiling in this house. It is going to be nice to not have plaster chunks falling on the stairs any more.

Is It Original?
Frank goes through a detailed account of whether we think the porte cochere is original to the Mooreland House or not. There was a comment earlier this week on one of the videos featuring the porte cochere and we wanted to follow up with a video. Hope you don’t mind a midweek update.
Working on ladders and walk boards isn’t as much fun as it seems. We have too much to do over the stair well to do much more safely. Building a temporary platform to work off of seemed the best solution. We build it strong enough to dance on.
We’re Hiding Something!
Once again, we must cover the stained glass window. This time we have to cover the inside. We need to pull down the drywall and plaster that loom over the stained glass. We are very protective of the glass because it is one of the only things left in the Mooreland House that is undamaged or taken out. We now have a little bit of an insulation sandwich with a stained glass filling. It will be well protected for the demolition that is soon to take place. Thanks for sharing a little bit of your week with us.
More Beam Discovery!
In today’s video we explore what is under the crown molding trim in the second floor hallway. We know that the beam needs some work but we can’t see it until we pull the trim. What we find is a little disturbing. We don’t know how they missed this.
