I Think I Better Get Out of the Way

Our bulldog, Wonderbutt, and my husband, the Venerable Cap’n Firepants, are now in fierce competition to see who can demolish our house with more panache.  The Cap’n claims that he is trying to prepare the house for the stained concrete flooring contractors who are scheduled to appear next week – but I think he just likes alleviating his stress by  pretending he is an actual pirate marauder who must destroy everything that isn’t made of gold.  Wonderbutt is apparently the reincarnation of Attila the Hun, and is determined to leave nothing alive in his wake.  The following pictures will show you the current status of our house.  See if you can identify the artist of each interior landscape.

Tile Removal - Because removing the carpet didn't make things look bad enough.

See the baby gate? Used to be a wall there.

There's the wall.

The artist behind this masterpiece left a few clues.

All I can say is that these BEFORE pictures better result in some darn good AFTER pictures by the end of this coming week.

  1. Wow u have to take down walls when u get mew floors?!

  2. I was contemplating ripping up the carpet in this house to expose the beautiful jarrah floorboards. I don’t think I’ll do it now!

  3. I hope your one week timeline of work completed comes to pass.

  4. I’m rooting for ya!

  5. One consolation..it cannot get any worse! and if all the jobs get done and done properly it will be very super posh!

    Than WB can make his mark on it all over again!!

  6. Simply looks like you had a little party.

  7. I think I’ll pass on Wonderbutt’s version of demolition. Good luck with the new installation!

  8. Hahahaha 🙂 More hands and paws equals less work! I am looking forward to seeing the after after pictures! 🙂

  9. What happened to the wall?!! You might as well demolish the whole house and start over from scratch.

  10. nice work, wonderbutt. good luck on the “afters.” cannot wait to see those photos. was that or will that be a pentagon-shaped wall opening??? my brain cannot quite compute that. we have ripped out carpeting, but never knocked down walls. there is entirely too much danger in that.

  11. Wow! Looks like you had one of those collie birthday parties…. er.. wait…. not enough damage for that…. Cant wait to see the after pictures for we bet it will be beautiful!!!

    Waiting with anticipation,
    your friends,
    the collies and chuck 🙂

  12. I can’t wait to see what it is going to look like when you are done!
