3 month renovation check-in
Hello friends! Welcome to the 3 month check in.
In mid-February the renovations at the lodging house began in earnest..we began removing old, battered drywall.
Later, new materials arrived.
New drywall and insulation!
New switch plate covers!!
This is what $600 worth of GFI electrical outlets look like.
Lots of new materials are going into the renovation, which means that lots of old stuff is coming out!!
Like this cast iron bathtub (it weighs about 300 pounds).
And these old windows.
And lots of garbage!!
I feel like this post (and the renovation) should be sponsored by caffeinated beverages from McDonald's.
I'm saving these bits of drywall, and insulation. They'll be used for small repair jobs later.
We removed a lot of scrap metal.
Jackpot! I found a great deal on curtain rods at our Habitat for Humanity! They are still in the box!!
We removed a LOT of old appliances from the building. Some of the collection is outside, waiting to be picked up. I used to refer to the building as the "dead appliance museum".
Have a cuppa on me everyone!
happy thrifting ;)
