Well my house is officially a war zone again. At least it looks like that. The yard has building materials all over the place and the inside of the house is a wreck. Last night I was trying to get the drywall off the wall in the bathroom and I used a grinder. I had no choice because there is wood behind the walls. So now there is drywall dust EVERYWHERE. It looks nasty and a wreck!!
To catch you up here is where I am at:
Renovations started Saturday as planned. I been back and forth to Lowes buying materials. Yes I said Lowes. Don’t judge me. Home Depot has not been very nice to me. Anyway here is how my house looked before I left the first time.
When I got back
When they finished I looked through some of the debris and there is a lot of useful stuff in there. I see a lot of garden junking will be going on!! Plant stands, benches etc. This pile will stay out here till spring when I can go out and take out nails. Hey, I bet the grandkids will love a nail pulling party!!
One mans junk is another mans treasure remember that. I have to go on the garden junk forum and see what they can help me imagine for projects.
I went outside and they forbade me from coming out…too dangerous they said. So I had to observe progress from inside. Hmmmph.
On one trip to Lowes and the guys truck was over loaded. He lost part of the load backing into the driveway. I think he will always remember this job now. His truck bed door is messed up also. WIll post photo later.
I purchased a shutter for my window in the bathroom but it was a little too narrow and a little too high. They cut it down for me at the salvage yard because at the time I did not have a saw. I purchased another one at Harbor Freight for $29 with a laser light!! I had to buy the blade separate but still, I think I got a deal. Tools really turn me on! I built out the frame a little to make it fit. I like this much better than curtains!!
The guys were here at 7AM this morning. Here is where we are on day two as of 9AM:
If you see anything wrong, please let me know!
But from what I see they are building the perfect room for me. I feel so blessed!!
