Let me start by saying this is a one man, one woman, one mom remodel. You're not going to see anything like a certain very popular lodge remodel that took place earlier in this fine state. We're doing it all and have the bumps, bruises, and cobwebs in our hair to prove it.
See that little tile in the corner. That's where I'm starting. Say good-bye to the drop ceiling.The only thing I'm missing is a hard hat and it might have been a good idea to have one.
What's this? Another ceiling? Hmmm. Interlocking tiles that were stapled to 1 x 4's. Down it comes.
Wanna see a dust goober? This is a healthy one.
The absolute best find of the day...The Daily Oklahoman from July 15, 1959.
Two kinds of ceiling tiles stacked on the floor. Heaven help me. Now I've got to get rid of them.
Here's DH knocking down one of the beams. Go DH! Knock them all down.
More dust goobers. These are kind of spooky.
All of the nonsense has been removed. The plaster is next to come down, but that's a job for tomorrow. I kind of hate to see the pink plaster go, but it's in sad, sad shape.
Here's what the dining room looks like right now. What a mess.Day one is done.
