So it begins. We took down the wood paneling and acoustic ceiling tile, sure we’d find some incredibly cracked plaster and maybe some water stains vaguely resembling the world map of 1924. We found some cracks, along with some pretty sweet wallpaper, and crumbling walls of horsehair and petrified lath. [Will do better with the cell phone photos next time.]

All in all a great day. Met some neighbors and the dog next door. Still not sure how anyone can call 70 square feet a bedroom.
