Progress in the first week

This week we've just spent trying to clean, get organized and figure out what comes first. We did get some of the windows open. I got some paneling down, and started taking off wall paper in the dining room. There were four layers of wall paper in the living room. Given this house is 90 years old, I didn't think that was too bad. Here are pics of the progress so far.

The front bedroom (The Green Room) - I started taking off the paneling to reveal pepto bismo pink paint over lilac wallpaper.

Uncovering history, it reads: H.A. Pollard, June 25, 1945. Pollard is a common name in Richmond.
