Like I said, it had yucky popcorn ceiling.
The only lighting were these fancy Christmas lights my ex-husband thought would give it a nice ambiance.
And it had a whole lotta junk.
And more junk.
So, yesterday we started cleaning it out and moving everything to the basement. Today we gutted it to the studs removing the paneling and the asbestos siding that was the exterior of the house before the addition was made.
Once it was all torn out, we scraped the ceilings to remove the popcorn and then spent the next few hours cleaning that huge mess up.
When my dear sweet husband gets home from work and I resuscitate (I had to use spell check on that one!) him from his cardiac arrest, we are going to head to Lowe's and get our supplies to start rebuilding. I'm so glad he loves me so much, or he'd probably beat me when he got home. I really should beat myself!
So, on the to-do list...
Remove 246,000 nails
Finish cleaning popcorn mess
Rewire existing plugs and switches
Add 4 additional wall outlets
Add overhead lighting
Frame out new wall to increase square footage of the bathroom connected to the space.
Add exterior plug on the back patio
Hang Drywall and finish
I think that's all we are shooting for right now.
The party is on the 29th and in addition to this little project I still have to finish the bathroom crown molding that I haven't finished yet, hang the door trim around the not-so-new kitchen door, hang our new over the stove microwave, clean the entire house, bake a two tiered cake complete with fondant figurines, decorate for the party (I'm making a ton of cute Mario themed decorations), a little yard work, and I really want to build a table for the hallway...
Does anyone have any Benedryl? I think I just broke out in hives....
