However slowly, it is progress. I decided to go ahead a rip out what was once the front entrance, porch and bay window. This part of the house opened on the side an I felt it was a bit awkward. The whole front has been taken off to be replaced by new doors. This allows a lot of freedom on the style of house this one will become along with the type and amount of doors or windows to choose from. You can't really do that as much with a back opening house. All of the interior walls have been removed as well. The side walls have been filled and sanded and filled and sanded and dare I say filled again. I am undecided about so many things for this house right now save a few must haves that I have always dreamed about for my own house like slate roof, stone exterior and an elegant eclectic interior.
