Gutted entrance hall

Here's our gutted entrance hall. This is looking at our new entrance, south.
The main support beams are 10 x 10 but the other ones are undersized. More support added.
The new staircase has to go thru the 10 x 10 beam. Before Mike would cut it he wanted to make sure all is OK. Both the architect and structural engineer came out to look at it. All is fine.

We found some very old wallpaper behind our present stairs to the 2nd floor. It was probably from the late 1800's. We found some more behind wood trim too.
