If eating carrots improves the eyesight, how come there are so many dead rabbits on the roads?

What kind of work are you doing on the electrical? Having the studs exposed is a great opportunity to redo to modern standards. A friend in Ohio has an old Victorian 3 story mansion, It also has an open beam attic that should probably become a finished room some day.

Having grown up in a very old farm house, I would probably consider finding as much fireproofing methods as possible to include in the construction. Maybe even sprinklers.

What a pleasure watching this project come to fruition.

Thanks DesertRatTom, Electrical has been replaced including the stack outside with 200Amp service, entire house has been rewired along with coax cable and Ethernet Cat 7 cabling to each room. that picture is just the goodies for the top floor, including hardwired smoke/CO detectors for each room not pictured.

Lots of great looking work! I've enjoyed seeing this the past few days.

I don't understand the lathe and horse hair plaster thing. What is that?

Tony , I’m liking your idea for a reel stand for the electrical wire . I guess you remove a few screws on the side and change the wire out?
To think I spent over $100 trying to find something I liked. Never even thought to use a few boards

I donít always insulate , but when I do .
Ok ,I never insulate
