One month into the project

North side of the house after columns got new brick
When you walk in the front door this is the right side of the living room. We are keeping the cabinets and adding another cabinet in the middle. You can see where there used to be a fireplace.
New columns. They will be wood on the top.
We used Ron Otwell to lay the brick. He did a great job. 
Here you can see where we are taking the back porch and turning it into the master bathroom and mud-room.
We took out two of the windows in the master bedroom to allow for a door to the new bathroom. One of the windows will be used in the bathroom on the backside of the house. We are using Jim Sisk as the carpenter. 

This is the backyard. I love the huge oak tree! I'm hoping the add a deck on the back eventually. 
This wall is going to stay wooden in the living room and the rest will be sheet rock. Right now we're trying to figure out how to make the walls look good. The previous owners hung cheese cloth on all the walls to put wall paper on so there are tons of nails in the wood.
This is looking from the kitchen into the dinning room and living room. There was a wall here but we tore it down to make everything more open. The walls in the dining room with all be wooden.
