A Full Week of Work

This will be a long blog this week because of the amount of

work that was done and the pictures not being anywhere

near a computer. Above is the room gutted and cleaned.

The chimney revealed an old stove pipe that had been

patched up and covered.


This is a HUGE critter nest of some kind – what you are looking at

is corn cobs. We’re thinking they have to be pre 1920.


New materials being delivered. Bill really liked them loading

everything into the room. (Thanks Russ)


Everything in.


Bill demolishing a wall after talking with me on the phone –

so all of the walls finally came down.


Mike came over to give the guys a hand with the ceiling.


Paul drywalling the ceiling (there will even be lights on the

ceiling with switches!). We’re coming out of the Dark Ages.


Starting the walls.

The window is out – and Paul is KP-ing the area.


After a few attempts they finally get the window

in the way they want it.

The next three shots all the drywall is up. Russ is building
a raised panel section to put over the mantel, should look
good – he does nice work.


My friend Dawn told me to make sure the workers
marked everything as they were putting it back together
for the next demo crew – they thought putting their empties in
the wall would be appropriate. Bill made sure it was a Summer Ale
so they would know what season it was.
