Day 1- Saturday's Recap
I was in such a hurry to get my blog up yesterday I forgot to mention a few things. First of all my BFF came out and helped and so did my son Big L so I wasn't all by myself. I really didn't go into a lot of detail about how Day 1 ended but here it is:
- Saturday night I didn't have any TV because the cable wire was taken out and the whole entertainment center was relocated. I could care less about TV.
- I had to take the thermostat out and relocate it but I didn't have enough 18/5 wire so I opted to not have heat. ** I do have a BIG wood burning stove so this is not as bad as it sounds.
- But here is the biggie: I had to disconnect the phone lines leaving me NO INTERNET!!!!! Come on, TV and heat are one thing but no internet???? Whats a girl to do?
So after the demo on Superbowl Sunday BFF and Big L got my stuff hooked up because life sucks with out the internet. I should have got my butt in gear and cleaned my house because it looks like a bomb went off in here.
Day 2- Sunday-Putting together a puzzle
Look at the picture below. What do you see?
A) A bunch of dust particles.
C) A thermostat wire dangling with no thermostat hooked it thus no heat
D) A hidden window
ANSWER: All of the above but the answer I was looking for was D. A hidden window. Dust and bad lighting does not make for good pictures but there is a 2x4 scabbed in there in the middle that you cannot see here. AND there is 2 separate walls side by side. All the evidence leads me to believe that this house was really two separate houses that were put together and whoever did that did not "marry" them very good. So I am going to be on a fact finding mission this week to try to figure out. I got a few people I can talk to and there is always the super fun court house! I will be letting everyone know what I find out.
So on the second demo day I took out this closet: Yes, that is clapboard on the inside of said closet.
Then it turned into this. I cannot believe what a mess one little closet can make. I am sure going to miss this closet. :-(
And here are all the pretty wall papers we go to enjoy during the demo. I actually have the green still upstairs and I liked the primitive blue with pink stars:
What era this comes from is anyone's guess.
I called the Gitter Done boys this morning and Joe is going to stop out and make me a material list and WE are going to go get it. He said that he wants to pick out the header material himself. I guess me being the drywall queen doesn't qualify me to pick out 2x12's. I am going quit while I am ahead on this subject.
I am home today with a sick goat and still cleaning up the mess from the weekend. I swear there is an inch of dust EVERYWHERE! Maybe if I put out a sign that says, "FREE DIRT" someone stop and help me.
