The common phrase I heard this past week was, “Welcome to being a homeowner.” Lots of things went wrong and took way longer than they were supposed to take, and I even had the pleasure of running into an ex because the week was just that awesome. But enough about me, let me tell you what is happening with the house.
Rob has been working so hard on the bathroom. The Hardie board backer is going up for the tub surround. This will provide moisture-proof backing for the glass tile.
I continued tearing the guest room to shreds with the righteous anger and incomprehension of how someone would wallpaper paneling and then PAINT over it!!! Morons. Thank goodness there is drywall underneath. It’s in rough shape, but we can fix it up. I can’t even describe the smell of that paneling without making you sick. It smelled a bit like sewage. As I was tearing everything down, the pile in the dining room grew larger and more overwhelmingly smelly.
Loving the transformation! What a HUGE undertaking for the first two weeks. 😉
I'm not surprised at your fervor, though.
And yes, you need a panda.
I third the call for a panda. Similar, but not the same, as a skunk. Let me know when you get it and I'll be there asap to visit. 😉 Great work team; you two are a home-renovating machine!
