Notice the two French doors...love them! We're ordering custom-made, wood screen doors for them. Also, using cremone bolts as the locking system.
In an effort to try and salvage some of the historical value of the home, we have decided to retain the two original front doors (one into the dining room and one into the living room) off the front porch, as well as the Dutch door that was the kitchen exterior door. It will now be used as our back door off the mud room. We found a great wood refinisher here in Chagrin. He picked up the doors today and will bring them back fully restored. It's great to be thinking of the "finished" stage.
The electrical rough in began yesterday (Monday) and they are already half way finished! Our hope is to have mechanical inspections by the end of next week.
You will notice there is a temporary roof over the glass atrium. This is in place so that we can move forward finishing the interior. Ken Shaw of Wilson Shaw was out at the house yesterday (Monday). He will be the one fabricating the atrium roof. He is expecting to have the roof ready for installation in seven weeks. We'll remove the temporary roof, and Ken lay his glass roof in place. Sounds simple enough, right??? Keep your fingers crossed.
