A little demolition is good for the soul
I never knew before we started this project, but I really like breaking stuff! I am not sure what that says about my personality, but I felt really at home using the crowbar.
You know I have always been in love with our house, from the moment I laid eyes on it just over 3 years ago. In case you don't know, this is our first house and it took us a very long time to get here. We were busy-going to school, having kids-you know, that kind of stuff. When we finally bought our house, it was a dream come true.
One thing that was anything but dreamy was the kitchen. With pink walls, pink COUNTERTOPS and a lovely floral stencil lining the walls, it wasn't exactly what I wanted in a kitchen. But it worked fine, and we painted it a shade of green I never quite settled on and got on with being busy.
Until-the roof leaked.
we patched and patched (and prayed)
but still, it leaked.
So, this demolition is the other side of the roof repair-the great ceiling renovation of 2010, which coincided with the snowpocalypse of 2010!
