Behind the Walls


The demo is finished upstairs and it's been really interesting to see what is behind the walls of this old house.  They discovered timber framing with wooden pegs and mortise and tenon joinery.



I love that they etched roman numerals in the wood so that they could be sure to match them up.


We joked that they used live edges back before it was the trend that it is today in furniture!


As I mentioned on instagram, even though we are covering the framing up with walls again I love knowing what is behind those walls and I also rest easy knowing that it's sturdy and solid!
