It has been three years since we started on the Mooreland House. Kerry put together a twenty minute video of all the projects we did in this third year. We had a good time going back through all the memories. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did.
Mooreland House Restoration
Electric Stair Chair
In today’s video we tear down an updated room up in the attic and take apart the stair lift in the back stairwell. We explain a little bit about why we are doing what we are doing on the Mooreland House as well. Thanks for watching and following us on this journey.
We have been a little concerned with the back stairwell in the Mooreland House. We decided to do some discovery and took down the lath and plaster. It definitely needs some attention. It is still holding together and we learned a lot about how it was built.
Lots Of Rock
Today’s video we clean up all the mess from the beam and joist project. We also show all of the stuff we have been collecting for the beginning of the big summer push. Hope you enjoy the video as we move on to the next thing.
No More Big Hole
We finished the joists and got in a temporary floor in the attic. The attic is safer now than it has been since we got the Mooreland House. We can now move on to other things. Thanks for watching!
We find another post that wasn’t properly supported in this week’s video. We put in a few more joists and remove quite a bit of the old flooring in the attic. We will be able to reuse the flooring.
Season 3 Episode 48
Can you believe we have been doing YouTube videos on the Mooreland House for almost three years? We have made so many temporary repairs that it is becoming almost comical. This is the last time we will have to jack up the roof so we take out all of the jacking posts we left in “just in case”. We are getting very close to wrapping up this attic episode and getting on to other parts of the house. See you again next Sunday!
Removing A Post
After years of the temporary post holding up the roof of the Mooreland House, we finally take it down. We now have the roof at the exact point it needs to be and we are moving on to the permanent goal. Thanks for following along on our journey!
Raising The Roof!
Now that we have a solid beam we can start supporting the roof of the Mooreland House again. It is nice to get the temporary posts out of the way and finally make a solid connection. We find out that not all of the roof was the same height but we will fix that!
We get the new beam installed in the video this week. We explain why we went with the laminated LVL beam. We felt really good about getting this area of the Mooreland House supported a lot better.
