It’s a big deal to be purchasing wood and nails. You know what that means????? She’s going back together. Today is exactly 5 weeks and 1 day since we started tearing her apart. We have beaten, beaten and BEATEN down wall after wall after wall after wall. OK you get it. The walls are plaster and were not salvageable so its not just 1 layer of drywall and some nails…..it’s 3 layers of plaster which only comes down with relentless hammering and then a layer of lath (remember the lath whisperer?) which comes down with a crowbar and a hammer. It’s hard work people, just sayin. Dad has quite the system for removing lath and can take down a wall like nobody’s business. Mom and I feel like the clean up crew most of the time. They tear it up, we clean it up.
This picture was the first trip, we have since been three times for 2 x 4’s. Insert happy dance here. Watching the floors being repaired and new walls going up is so exciting.
Everyone is hanging in there. I will be posting pictures of the family this weekend so you know that everyone is still alive and kicking.
