The west wall; subfloor is up too. You can see where the chimney for the old coal furnace used to be (I suspect this was removed fairly early on). Later we'll remove the wood framing, which is completely pretzeled, and install new warp-free metal framing.
The middle part of the west wall, with the ill-fated HVAC stack. We removed this later and replaced with radiant heat and A/C duct that doesn't make a big bump in the middle of the room.
If I didn't know better, I'd say our house at one point was like one of those hotel rooms with a door into the next room. What the hell???
The north wall with the old sliding door. Later we removed the framing and the wall, replaced it with metal framing, filled in half of the door opening, and installed a lovely oak-and-glass door in the other half.
Some random wiring. Not quite sure why I thought this was important. For what it's worth, this is the ceiling over the front door.
