The front end of our business is our wooden wall art and furniture, but on the back end, we spend a ton of time tearing the lath out of houses set for demolition in and around Nashville. Lately, we've been thinking that it would be cool to show you guys a bit more behind-the-scenes action of these demos (and a bit of history about the houses).
In the past couple of weeks, we've been working on a 1928 Craftsman-style bungalow in the Cleveland Park neighborhood of East Nashville. Unlike many of the houses we go into, this house isn't slated for demolition (which we're thankful for). Rather, the owners are planning on restoring the historic details like the built-in cabinets, but tearing down some walls to reconfigure the floor plan — and kindly donating the unused wood to us. They're completely gutting the house and starting from scratch with the original bones in tact, which should make for a really beautiful finished product.
Here's a peek inside the house while we were in the midst of demolition.
