When my dad called this the Great Room, he wasn’t kidding. It was a full day of floor removal yesterday and today, the two are back to finish it up.
My dad pulled nails. He is tired and the leukemia is kicking his butt. So? Our son took over the vacuum.
He vacuumed the baseboards, the nooks, the crannies, the walls. It all needs to be clean for new walls to go in.
Meanwhile, my husband started stripping floors in the laundry/utility room. It’s adjacent to the Great Room.
Layers and layers, until he hit old hardwood oak floors. Unfortunately, a previous homeowner thought gluing linoleum to the beautiful hardwood made sense, so out that came!
Endless hours on his knees, my husband has the sweat marks to prove this is hard work.
And then we were down to bare walls and floors.
The dumpster is full…we still have ceilings to drop. So? A new dumpster is scheduled to be brought in.
While hauling concrete chunks, this was found. Someone started a legend that it was a tombstone.
It is not, it is the type of clay used…where, I’m not sure exactly.
In Ten days, my husband and dad have done the demolition in the:
- front bedroom
- back bedroom
- Living Room, Hallway
- Kitchen Floors
- Hauled all worldly possessions to the conex box
- Laundry Room
- Great Room
- Removed the flooring in the Great Room
We still need to drop the ceilings.
