I said in my last post that we’d be working on the house over the Labor Day weekend. Boy, I wasn’t kidding. Work, work and more work. The problem is we don’t seem to be getting very far. When they built these old houses, they did it right, which makes undoing it a very big chore. My tiny downstairs bathroom is turning into a nightmare. It took three days just to get the ceiling and walls down. It was a real shame we had to take them down because they were very sturdy. Drywall board was a brand new product when this house was built and they used the drywall board, but they also covered the walls floor and ceiling with a half inch of concrete. I’d never have knocked them down if we hadn’t had a mildew problem. It was growing everywhere so a gut job was necessary.
Now I have drywall dust everywhere. I’m constantly mopping the floors in the main part of the house, but every time anyone walks through the other part of the house, the white footprints are back. Both downstairs bedrooms and the hallway are crammed with construction supplies. It may take a month to finish this job. I do have the painting of my porch foundation almost completed. Worked two days just scraping the thing. So if I’m not around much, you’ll know what I’m doing. I’ll be stopping by to visit you guys as time allows. Bye for now. Be happy. I’m trying to be. 🙂
