Schoolhouse in Lumberland NY

So a couple of clients of mine who bought a cottage a few years back decided to pick up this old schoolhouse (and later incarnation as a gospel church) in Barryville, NY, and now we are renovating it into a 2 bedroom home (albeit with a lot of history).

When we found it it was this really great open big one-floor space.  We are poking a hole to the attic, building a staircase, and creating 2 bedrooms and 2 baths upstairs.  There's a great old bell tower up there too.

From a construction perspective, this was a real dozey - add in 0 degree temps when we started and a foot of snow and that made it a little harder.  But we had a good plan, the right machines and the right guys on the job and we hurdled those complexities without too much drama, cost or delay.
