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. 
and leaked
and 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!

It looks great! Ugh...I lived in plenty of demolition sites but it's always worth it in the end.
