I do have to say Jungle I have seen a lot of houses and even more photos of houses and I don’t think I have seen anything quite as unique as yours.

Ever think of changing your screen name from Jungle to Jenga? Perfect name for a firewood homeowner I think.

It's getting better and better all the time, the open ceilings just makes the mind sore. It's like the house i always wanted. The down side is the crib like beds on the platforms. Basically you go up the stairs and that's it, your in bed.

I don't think anyone has taken any structural walls out, on the up side i have remove around 3 tons of old material from 2nd floor, not to mention the rot wood. The house must be much lighter now. The joists are completely exposed now too, so i can adjust make them stronger even level.
House is much more airy now and almost mold free, just a few tiny spots to still cut out. I was reading this is what they call a 'green house' design, people will pay more for.
Using reclaimed lumber in house is just nuts - now that is scary stuff! No wonder the RE agent is so paranoid when she sees me, probably worried about being sued. I am sure plenty of people know about he reclaimed lumber problem (except me.)
Interesting my neighbours house was built in 1985 and roof is already sagging, so i guess 1949 was not such a bad year for houses.
