We really had no plans to do anything on the house this weekend. The inspector never showed up Friday to inspect the footings so we couldn’t pour any concrete Saturday. That is now planned for 10am tomorrow. But nevertheless, it turned into a FULL weekend of deconstructing the closets to make way for the hallway.
Without warning Friday night, Scott started taking the wire racks in the closet that I had emptied last weekend. I snapped this before picture on my cell because I knew, HERE WE GO. When Scott starts a project, WATCH OUT.
Not too long thereafter and there went the carpet.
And then the wall in between the two closets Saturday morning.
But he couldn’t stop there… He decided to go ahead and close in the wall.
So he did. The girls officially have NO closet.
So we took a break then and ran some errands, went to dinner. But oh, the fun couldn’t stop. He started tearing down OUR wall. And even though you have to take a double-take, the TV is no longer hanging on the wall, but on its stand on the dresser, pulled away from the wall. Just wanted to clear up that it’s safe and sound.
And then it was the wall into the bedroom. Please don’t be concerned that THERE ARE ELECTRICAL WIRES in the wall.
We about had our fill last night but oh, I just couldn’t keep my hands off the hammer today after church. “I’ll just finish the small wall.” I can’t tell you what kinds of good it does for PMS.
See? I did some of the work. I think Scott was quite amused.
And after this next picture, you’ll see why. Check that face out. But look closer. Check out the hammer that went THROUGH THE WALL and the dry wall is mid-air. POWER, PEOPLE. I GOTZ IT.
But not really, I left the real work to Scott where he took out the studs. I’ll refrain from any stud jokes. I’m sure my sister will appreciate it.
And…we couldn’t stop there. So the rest of the wall came down.
And TA-DA! All the old is gone and our hallway is taking shape!
Next step is building the new wall 8” inside the room so we meet code on the width of the hallway.
Also, it will be nice to have a home for the light switches.
