Finally got the dining room painted. Next will be the living room. Still have to sand and stain all the wood work. I will also be refinishing the floors.

I have been installing drywall in the living room and dining room. I still need to mud and tape. I made a built in box for the thermostat that will have trim and door on it. I will use pie safe tin in the door frame so the sensor can work properly.
I have installed a six switch panel for various lights. I also have the attic fan switch with a green vintage Leviton light that is period correct (Top Left). The switch plates are solid brass Hart & Hegeman that I bought on EBay. The top right switch box will be used as a spare box possibly for front yard light.
The dining room has a stove pipe clean out access that will be plated. Prior to tearing out the lathe and plaster, it had been painted and mudded over some years back.

My wife and her friend decided to take matters into their own hands and tear apart the living room lathe and plaster. Meanwhile I am outside scraping and painting. They are having a great time believe it or not. Having tore apart five rooms thus far, I don't envy them!
