Day thirteen. We bought a front door.
The house is pretty much basic bare bones.
Ceilings are down. Walls are studs. Floor is bare.
We have been debating on whether we are keeping the bathtub or getting rid of it. Here’s the before picture.
With the house bare, and everything we have encountered, we chose to pull the bathtub out.
This was underneath:
There are snake skins everywhere in this house. They have been in the rafters, in the walls. Yuck!
With the tub out, and the snake skin removed, we realize removing the bathtub was the right choice. The floor underneath the tub is rotten from water damage.
While my husband and dad work on removing the remaining floor in the bathroom, my brother is taking measurements for the windows.
We will need 17 windows to complete the house.
As the men go to the hardware store for supplies, they run across an amazing deal on a front door. It has built in blinds between the glass and is too good of a deal to pass on the purchase. They bring it home!
They plan to move the front door back out to its original placement and this door will fit perfectly, so for now it rests against an inside wall until they are ready to begin the project.
In Thirteen days, my husband and dad have done the demolition in the:
- front bedroom
- back bedroom
- Living Room, Hallway

We still have the ceiling in the great room and laundry room to drop.
