Today’s demolition started with me. In an early morning trek back from showering in the house to the motor home, I fell from the dining room into the sunken living room, onto the concrete. My flip-flop got caught in the exposed edge of sheet rock while I was trying to step down without a step! I felt as if I was starring in the “Help, I’ve fallen and can’t get up” commercial. I laid on the concrete floor until scooting over to the ledge to pull myself up. I won’t bore you a list with my injuries, but I will say, that if a body part doesn’t hurt, it is because it is already numb from old age. I’ll survive, unless I decide to wear flip-flops in the construction zone again.
Johnny and his crew were here today as was the window guy and the cabinet guy. Lots of guys here today! The last of the paneling was removed from the hallways. They look better already.
The space for the refrigerator and freezer was adjusted to fit.
The old fluorescent box was framed in, ready for drywall and recessed LED lights tomorrow. The cabinet doors and drawers were removed and donated to ReStore.
“I hate renovation.”
“So I am going back to bed.”
Tomorrow a lot of the drywall mudding will be done. I am really excited to see that. There will be a lot of effort required to get it right, because of the damage from the paneling adhesive. Johnny and the guys will make it right!
