M-101 (North Wing Closet and Stair enclosure)
Les Lamois is framing the stair enclosure for the north cellar stairs
M-106 (North Passage)
Mac Ward is leveling the framing for the small, Madison-era second floor landing that survives in situ. We plan to re-use this framing, although dutchmen, additional bracing and epoxy treatments will most likely be needed before the new carriages are attached.
Re-used riven lath is also being installed in the western portion of this space.

Keith Forrey has installed the headers for the doorways into this space.
M-111 (Back Chamber)
The top portion of the re-constructed chimney breast has been completed. It had been left unfinished in order to install duct work.

The closet under the stair is being lathed with re-used riven lath
The top rails have being installed on the north and south wings.
