leveling off entire floor, was out about 3/8" to 1/2" in center, not bad for 114 years old.
also time to install new windows, exterior of house has 1+" thick shiplap, then wood siding then parging then stucco so pretty thick walls......while I'm changing all the windows I am also changing many of the original sizes and orientation. This little diamond blade on my grinder made this task quite simple. (after 13 windows rough cut in and also trimmed for brick mold this cuts like new still).
you can see how went from vertical to horizontal on some of the windows. Not going to bore you with any of the electrical installation pics it was straight forward so on to insulation and vapour barrier. Then 18" of blown in insulation in the attic for an R60. 35 bags went in pretty quick, built a square box 20" tall around access to fill it entirely without the blown in stuff falling out of the attic. Will fill the hole with batted insulation when finished

Yeah, the notched joist caught my attention too. Definitely needs some added support or you're going to develop some serious squeeks during it's second century.

What an awesome project. Looking forward to seeing more.

figured the ceiling on the main floor had to be leveled off like the top floor so here is the ceiling all leveled off with new drywall, oh and may as well post a pic of the new staircase as well, little guy approves . see my home made bakers Scaffolding...comes in handy... Entertainment wall along side of stairs with all wires hidden.
