Teal Walls, No Walls.

Saturday wasn't the most productive day ever, but we were super excited to arrive to one exciting change! (more on that in a minute)
P was able to get a lot of the drywall down in the bathroom upstairs. And look...teal walls! Wow.
That combined with the awesome brown wallpaper that we keep finding on all the other walls I am starting to think that a very talented decorator once lived here {enter sarcasm here} and I can only hope to do as good of a job. Ok, ok moving on. In case you have forgotten the only thing anyone has done to this house over the years is add layers to what was there before. So...lath, plaster, many layers of wallpaper, drywall, wood paneling. Or...wood floors, paper, glue, linoleum, glue, more linoleum. Gross. Anyway, my point is...drywall is only the first layer of stuff to remove from the bathroom. We have a long way to go.

Awesome door handle on the bathroom door.

We plugged up the skylight/former drop pipe penetration! There will be no rain (hopefully) in my yucky house. Well, at least not through that hole.

I guess they didn't know how to properly frame in windows? Or maybe this is how framing around the windows was done in the 1800s? I don't know, but we get to redo it all now.

Ok, so now on to the downstairs. Look! No walls! No temporary walls either! This is very exciting.

One big open room. So much better.

The boys had a very positive reaction to the new setup and can not wait to move back in. (Yes, they told me that)

Whew. When I look at these pictures I see so many pro
jects that we have to accomplish! It's hard to know what to start next. Thank goodness P's dad and brother are arriving in 6 days! It is going to be so so great to have not one, but two extra sets of hands (and super experienced hands at that). We are so lucky they are coming!
