The street down below. Someday I'll climb out on the roof, get up on top, and get a view from up there. Today is not that day.

Slightly before this point, I discovered the chimney was full of ash.

Goes through the roof, about as you would expect a stack to go.

Apparently a prior resident of the house decided to wire the switch by simply stapling it to the planks instead of running the wire above the ceiling.

I suspect this is not code compliant.

These fixtures will be moved into the upstairs rooms when they're completed, so there'll be lights up there at least until I can come up with something better.

They're useless downstairs at the moment, since the overhead fixtures were powered with the old knob & tube wiring which was cut off back when we redid the upstairs bathroom.

Bricks. This is about 1/3 of the chimney. The rest of the bricks will move over here at some point. If they fail to move by themselves, I'll be forced to assist them in that effort.

The wiring goes to the overhead fixture. Before the ceiling gets closed up again, I'll run some 14 gauge 3-wire over thataway so it'll be easy to rig up a fixture in the future.

That pipe is the old gas line. EVERY room in the house had a gas line, although it had long since passed the point where the pipes were safe to use.

A new wall will be built here, right next to the old one that has some significant termite damage. That way we won't have to cut out the old wall and it can remain to support the siding, but the new wall will support the floor above and the upstairs studs.
