I am sure that you may remember my mention regarding our home which I call "The Fortress of Solitude".
This summer DH removed the siding from the addition which was done in the 80's and put house wrap and some insulation up, which has helped immensely in warming up the house, and DH and I had already discussed "fixing" the junk room since that is the one room which had not been updated. That room is cold since there is no insulation, but what started the big push was Friday the youngest daughter advised me that the SO had walked out and she decided it was time that they went their separate ways. After reviewing her income, and her bills we as a family determined the best course of action would be for her and the three little boys to move in with us. She will pay rent, and I will continue to care for the boys during the day while she is at work. Our home is a much better place for the boys to be, and they will have room inside and outside to roam. Friday evening the big move began. DH and I cleaned out 3 bedrooms, and our sitting room by Saturday afternoon.
Sunday the demo started. Of course I can't find/nor did I take a before picture. But this is what it looked like when we started to tear out the lathe and plaster. Sorry the pictures are not great, but there was 150+ years of dust in the air from the demo.
Then wall 2. Yep paper wasp nests, and more bees.
Today I have a wee bit of cleaning to do....we had a dust drift into the hallway. Oh well.
