Weird, huh? With all the sawdust and power tool sounds, trying to concentrate on sniffing anything is just right out. Everything is covered in a layer of dust.
I did my master bath a year ago, and it was upstairs and kinda out of the mainstream and much more closed off. This is opening up my kitchen, taking out most of a wall, complete demo, moving part of another wall. Well, there is zero containment on this.
The opening in the front part of the picture is where they opened up the wall between the living room and the kitchen. This is a 1930s house, and there are a lot of weird things you find when you start pulling it apart. People keep yelling at me about this, but I am closing off those two windows in the nook. I NEED the space. It is a small kitchen, and taking out this wall takes out a ton of storage. I still have a backdoor and a window above the sink, and I get plenty of light in the room. Next week, pictures that will hopefully be very different. If not
First day I tried vacuuming up the dust, mopped the floor. Did almost no good. So, um, done with that until it’s over. I did order a bunch of dusting stuff and a new vacuüm because mine is not up to this task at all, it’s served me well for the last 7-8 years, but time to go! And here is a cute picture of the puppies in their Eiffel Tower and Perfume Bottle pink dresses to make up for the lack of a perfume post.
With any luck, we will be done or done enough by the first of next week that I can smell anything but sawdust and we can talk about something fun.
