The Den’s Ceiling Removed

Restoration Diary,

The plaster ceiling in our den has been torn down. We now have open access to easily update the electrical work, plus add some wall sockets. I guess there is always a silver lining?

Later today the plumber is coming to remove an old gas line that is coming out of the baseboard. It is capped but still live. The gas line was leaking when we first moved into the house so I am relieved to see it go. We are having the open walls and ceiling cavity sprayed with borate to prevent future termite infestations.

    Wow! That is a wicked cool space up there!! Is it dead space? An attic? A room?

    I think you should get creative with this one :)

    Maybe a neat little skylight? (1912 Bungalows had ‘em…usually in the kitchen but oh well…) A little loft space? This is the loft above the den in my PIL’s bungalow…so sweet and such a lovely, cozy, creative space. I lived in it between houses. http://www.houseinprogress.net/images/dmoft.jpg
