Look! Windows!

So the next steps will be to replace the windows with double-pane, safety-glass something or others -- need to do some window shopping. Drywall the demo'd wall and frame out the windows. And now that I've seen a portion of the ceiling opened up, I talked it over with Brian and we've decided to go ahead and open it all up rather than drywalling it in. So the ceiling will actually be the underside of the subfloor and the floor joists, like beams. Whether that gets painted or what I don't want to decide until I've seen it all exposed, but I think it'll give the space some character and a much greater sense of headroom. Then there's also the question of what to do with the pocket-door wall -- replace it with a better assembly or do something more creative. I'm mulling it over.
