Glenside Addition, progress

This Victorian in Glenside (See Glenside Addition, below) is underway after the brutal winter wrecked the schedule. Framing is complete, wiring about to start, insulation to follow.

A couple of minor disappointments: due to budget, the windows are vinyl, which made them a bit smaller and led to double hungs instead of awnings in a few places. There is also the change in character with the old house, but this sort of thing is often necessary and can be undone in the future.

But the rest is spectacular! A ton of room for the master suite, with the wonderful little window seat and bid niche under the eaves, a much better flow for the main level, new bath and laundry upstairs. And the 3rd floor was just to be for HVAC but is so nice that they \are reconsidering the equipment location so it can work as a guest room.

On the main floor, the dining has been opened to a new family room, and a pass thru and new kitchen configuration added.  And the rear porch has a great view down the deep back yard. Worth moving the garage!
