Living Room Washers

With much, if not all, of the living room demo completed, we’re closing in on being able to put drywall up on the walls. Before all that though: we’re putting a layer of drywall on the ceiling (ceiling first, then the walls).


Final Living Room Bunny Prep

After work, Liz and I suited up to finish off the last remaining bits of work we needed to attend to. We’ve got some boarders coming to our house tomorrow night, and still had some things that needed to get done.


House Day, Talk Night

Here’s me talking about a particular moment from back in 2005. I’ll keep this a secret until the video’s available, but maybe some of you might know what this is about.


A Farewell Gift

This is about as far as I got with mine. My joke was that Sajit’s last gesture before he left was to leave all of us with a small bit of work that was impossible to finish.


Returning Home to More Demo

Sunday morning, Liz and I debated how to spend the day. We talked about possibly heading in to St. Louis to visit a few places, but they all didn’t open until noon.

Ultimately, we decided to head back to Chicago so we could… do more house work, and do more demo. We figured that we’d get home mid-afternoon, leaving us a few hours to get some more work in.


Workday Demo: Wednesday

As may be evident from the photographic documentation, I want to say we’re losing steam. We got a decent amount done tonight… but this is tantamount to us working five days in a row non-stop doing demo work.


Workday Demo: Monday

Despite it being a Monday, Liz and I wanted to keep to our house schedule this week. That means suiting up after work, and putting in two hours or so of demo.

This was really challenging, especially coming off a weekend where all we did was demo. But we are wanting to get the first floor in shape. So we’re driven.


Living Room Demo, Part 1

Before I could take hammer to wall, I had to score the ceiling, take off all the trim in the room, cover up a few vents, and also tape up some plastic to contain all the dust. I started the actual demo closer to noon, I want to say.


The House and the Holidays

Liz did a lot of decorating last week, making our under-construction house feel more in the spirit of things. It’s been amazing how much cozier things feel now, with the slight glow of some holiday lights.
