Evan and our apartment architect went to our new home last week for another inspection. Since we are gutting the apartment, Evan wanted to get a better understanding of how everything is structured. Low and behold, he was able to get a sneak preview of what our apartment might look like bare bones-- he visited an apartment two floors down that is also being renovated. Right now, we have drop ceilings--- but apparently, once we tear it out, we will find beautiful, original wood beams (our building is pre-war) as evidenced by ev's snapshot of our neighbor's. AND super high ceilings. Hooray!
