The Grand Unwrapping

7:30 am: Monday morning. We arrived to find the work crew already starting to strip stucco off the house. As we had hoped, the old bevelled siding underneath is in excellent condition except for a bit of rot around a couple of windows and at the bottom of the front steps.

This is where pictures are worth more than words, so here is a brief visual account of progress on this first day:

We are delighted to see the character of the old house beginning to shine through.
