Now that the second floor is insulated (and we wouldn't be heating the great outdoors), we got to open up the stairwell to the second floor. What a difference! It has a whole different feel to it now!
Don't you love how I leave great big notes for the crew??? I'm sure I drive those guys crazy :-)

I tried to find a good 'before' pic looking down the back hall....but since the stairwell wall was in the way, it was hard to find the right angle. This is the best I could do. Besides opening the stairwell wall on the right, we've removed the louvered closet on the left, the funky arched wall and raised the floor level and ceiling in front of the windows to match the rest of the house.

The drywall will get finished up this week. Next week the hardwood floors go in and then the really fun stuff starts. Stay tuned!
