oh man. what a few weeks we've had. i'm officially exhausted! and so is Jae. i'm about to go to bed, but i want to post a few more pics of what we've been spending all our extra time doing:
ugh. i hate demo. it's so over-rated.
but anyway! this won't be very well put together, but here are a jumble of pics from the last 3 weeks.
after all the 'stuff' was out (aka what we had to work with in the beginning):
*pics taken by my phone. yep, still can't find the camera. so please excuse the crapiness*
|front/living room. |
yes, that wallpaper is like felt-y, fuzzy
|just to give you an idea how horribly disgusting the carpet was|
|kitchen. metal cupboards. stylish. and holy HEAVY.|
|other half of said stylish kitchen|
|teeny tiny half bath|
|bedroom. panelling & wallpaper were clearly staples in these people's decor.|
|yes, that's fake brick and carpet in the bathroom. win win eh!|
|no, there wasn't a fire. it's just dirt. |
and who knows what else. comforting isn't it?
|dining room. linoleum and glass squares. on the wall.|
|you're seeing correctly. that's a camera in our hallway!|
|this might possibly have been the best find in our whole house.|
we named him 'el matador'. he used to reside on the wall inside the shower, just above the tub.
he's now in shambles somewhere. probably the dump. classy!
|said tub. eek.|
yup. that's it. the toilet in the carpet-covered bathroom. saved the best for last. YOU'RE WELCOME :)
now some more picture overload with everything we've been doing since the above photos...
|hardwood under all that nasty carpet!|
|no, someone didn't die in here. we think.|
|Jordan! our best helper ever. |
thank you again Jord!
|more panelling and wallpaper coming down|
|glass pieces. really loud when they shatter on the ground.|
|gold felt wallpaper gone! hallelujah.|
|our pile of crap building in the yard pre-dumpster arrival|
|this big roll of carpet was half grown into the ground in front of the house.|
we didn't even notice it for like a week! see pic below..
|yep. that's where the carpet was grown into the ground. weird.|
|dumpster arrived! YAY|
|kitchen coming down|
|the neighbor's backhoe assisted in taking out the chain-link fence.|
pays to live in west bountiful :)
|oh no big deal. just a big hole in the floor where the kitchen sink was.|
|backhoe pulled out a big, prickly sticky bush for us|
|first hits to the kitchen wall! |
(it's all out now)
|remember that carpeted bathroom?? here she is now!|
|laundry area all wall-less|
|we decided taking out the entire kitchen floor would be best instead of just a piece. |
Jae was glad to have an excuse to buy a sawzall!
more pics to come soon.
