Gutting almost all done.

 We are getting close to the end of the gutting part of the reno.  Another day or two and we can start the rebuilding of the shop.

A bit of cleanup and a few repairs to do, then begins the fun stuff.  I always enjoy the restoring more than the teardown.

We found an old window that had been covered up and had a great laugh over it.  Look at all that insulation, nicely stuffed into the window cavity and not a bit of insulation in the walls.  Way too funny!!

The floor was another hoot as so far we have found 3 different colors and styles of carpet and 2 of linoleum.  Even 1 of peel and stick tiles.


Next is the job of pulling all the nails in the ceiling and along the walls so we can put up the vapor barrier and drywall. I can feel my arms screaming already.  Oww.

Hard day at the Office

 It was a hard week this week but we sure got a lot done.

We managed to get the furnace out and the bathroom appliances removed as well.

The furnace came out a lot easier than we thought it would although the duck work is proving to be a different story.  So Next week up into the attic to take the remainder out.

The hood of the heater waiting to go outside.

Taking advantage of a few days of warmer weather we also managed to take the fiber board off the ceiling.  What a job.  Thank goodness for proper gear!!

The amount of crap that came out of the ceiling was amazing.  Even found a nest or two.  

I had the easy job of pulling it all down.  Give me a wreaking bar and a good hammer I can take down the world. lol  Tyler had the hard part of packing all that crap out to the dumpster.

Tyler was going a little crazy in the end!

Hot and tired after the two days.  Time for a beer and fry's.  Yeah!!
