Hello Mr. Dumpster. Welcome to our front yard.
When I drove up to the house Monday after work, I was pretty darn excited to see that dumpster there, not going to lie. Dumpster = demo = removing the ugly = mission accomplished. However, my excitement quickly left when I walked closer to the dumpster and realized it spelled like poo. Complete and utter POOOOOOO.
Oh well. Either the smell has gotten better or I am used to it now because I barely noticed when we left Monday night.
So with saying hello to the dumpster, we were able to say goodbye to the beautiful ceiling tile in the front living room, kitchen, and one of the bedrooms upstairs. Hurray!
It reminds me of an office building. A really ugly, office building. Why would you want this in your house? Anywho. Goodbye ceiling tile!
It came down really easy, just a little tug. The worst part was the black dust that fell on us with each removed tile. Yuck. The fireplaces were originally coal burning, so my guess is that it is coal dust.
In about half an hour, the kitchen ceiling looked like this:
It looks like an animal tried to move in. Not really sure.
After we took down the ceiling, Ryan went back to working on removing the vinyl and particple board upstairs (you can see here where Dad started this fun project) .
How did that get in there?? Oops 🙂
Site supervisor Bella giving her approval.
So while Ryan man handled the floor, I finished up removing the ceiling tile in the upstairs bedroom. And wallpaper. MORE WALLPAPER.
Mom helped me get started with removing tile and wallpaper on Saturday. All I had left to do was move the giant pile of trash downstairs. Hmmm. How do you get a giant pile of crap from the second floor to the dumpster outside when the windows don’t open?? You hurl it down the stairs. That is what you do. Or that’s what I did.
Worked pretty well. I kind of scared the dogs though. You can see supervisor Bella running for cover.
While Bella did not approve of my hurling-crap-down-the-stairs technique, she did approve of our donation pile. Thanks, Bella!
Good day at the new-old house. Day 5 complete.
