Some of you might remember me from the previous house build thread: I bought a burned up house to live in

I recently bought another house in DC with the goal of doing a complete renovation and then holding onto it and renting it out. This is a pretty standard DC rowhouse, and there isnt any crazy backstory like with my other house. Right now I have done demo on everything that I can, with the permit that I have. I should have the permit to build in 6 weeks or so. Anyway here is where I stand now compared with the photos of when I bought it. Ill update this with any progress that I have, it will be ongoing for the next six months.

why did you take down all the dry wall and ceilings? They did not look badly damaged in the pictures
Everything is getting reframed, and the layout is going to be totally different. Load bearing walls are being replaced, beams are going up, etc. I need to have access to be able to do all of that.

I love it too, but I need to tear it out and strengthen the joists below it. They span too far for their size, and I need to level the floors. There also isnt any subfloor so I have to tear it all out. :hs:
What?! Oh that's stupid lame. I assume you can't salvage any of it?
