That’s not to say that there hasn’t been progress. On Saturday morning, while we were out shopping, a crew came by and finished ripping out the walls of both the kitchen and the bathroom, leaving behind the toilet, the stove, and quite ironically I think, the kitchen sink! They also taped up the doors to the two bedrooms upstairs with plastic so dust will not infiltrate those rooms as drywall is being taped and sanded.
The waiting game comes with problems in the attic. (entrance pictured at left) There is blown insulation in the attic, which needs to come out because we are having so many new lights put into the ceiling and they can’t work around the insulation. There also wasn’t enough of the stuff to begin with to do any good at preventing heat loss, and there also isn’t enough ventilation, which allows moist air to be trapped and eventually cause mold. So…some guys are coming next week(Wed. or Thursday we hope) with some sort of giant vacuum cleaner to suck out the insulation.
I get the feeling not much else is going to get down until that next step. Patience, patience. Here’s a video walk-through of the latest destruction:
