I didn't remember to get the camera out until I had already gone TWANDA! on the thing but I did manage to find a really old Christmas picture that has it in it.
It was very self-satisfying to say the least. I enjoyed taking the sledgehammer, hitting the stone and watching the stone and mortar just fall off.
There was a bench on the side that had newspapers in it and various things that the kids liked to hide. That was the first to go. Once I got to the bottom of the newspapers there were some interesting things. A funny page from 1958, a 38 cent package for eyeliner. I want to pay 38 cents for eyeliner! Oh, yeah there was stinky mold too. Joy of joys.
When Patrick got home he got in the spirit and he and his friend
John tore down the paneling and drywall underneath. They willingly tore it down but when I said that clean up was part of the job you would have thought I was speaking Chinese. Yeah, I did the clean up. Patrick did help with the stone!!
When Sean got home he didn't say a word. I didn't really know if he was so angry he couldn't speak or if he just had nothing to say. By the next morning he got in on the action. He decided to put more plugs in and update the wiring. He really should be thanking me ;)
I will blog more pictures and info as we make progress. Hopefully this isn't more than a 3 parter but if it is I will drag all of you who read this along with me!!
I Love Construction!!!!
