All the wood moldings and shelves are from rough saw rafters reclaimed when I vaulted the ceiling.

The outside of the house. I rebuilt all the original counter-weighted windows, added the porch railings, and the stairs and upper deck.

Quite a transformation. What is the rest of the house like?

Unfortunately I'm not much of a picture taker and those are the only ones that I have available, but the rest is all brand new and other than the kitchen appliances looks like it is brand new from 1859. Plaster walls and reclaimed wood floors throughout with furniture from the period.

The whole inside of the house looked pretty much like the before pictures of the bathroom when I started.

Nice! Did you do all the plumbing yourself? I hate plumbing - it always turns into a nightmare for me.

The only things hired out were installing a new electrical service panel and running gas lines to all the rooms to replace the coal burning potbellied stoves with propane look a likes.

The wood upper portion was where a low dovecote was. We tore it off and added a full bedroom and bath upstairs with vaulted ceiling. The wood on the outside is reclaimed barn wood.

Continued.

This is the new upstairs bedroom, more modern than the rest of the house. The low portion where the bed is the dimensions of the old dovecote.

The ship's ladder to the new upstairs bedroom. The beams on the ladder and in the ceiling are reclaimed from a railroad bridge from the Missouri. The stair treads are rough sawn rafters saved from the dovecote.
