The Big One.
By the numbers: (you can sing 12 Days of Christmas, if you like… I like)
1 roll of plastic sheeting
19 hours of ceiling scraping
10 trips to Lowe’s
9 muscles we didn’t know could be sore
8 swings with the sledge hammer
7 piles of debris
6 surprises found
5 bags of ceiling popcorn… from the 19 hours of scraping
4 days without a kitchen
3 really sturdy soffits… really really sturdy
2 exhausted people
1 huge truck load to the landfill
Demolition pretty much complete. After the texture and paint go on the ceiling, the carpet can come up and we’ll have a nice empty space to work with. I can not wait.
