I am Not Ignoring You

Dimples and I are off on a great girl adventure to visit our cousins, the Globetrotters, leaving Cap’n Firepants to deal with the noise, dust, and contractors who are working on our new concrete floor.  Although I will have my iPad, my favorite piece of technology ever, my WordPress app is a little persnickety.  So, I am leaving you with some short posts I scheduled to roll out each day to tide you over until we return.

For those of you who questioned our wall demolition on Saturday’s post, here are some pictures to show the progress.  At least, we call it progress.  You might call it a travesty.  But, trust me – that wall had to go.

Original wall - made of cedar. Very 70's. Always getting in the way.

Halfway through the demolition.

Done. Now the floor crews can take care of that section, and we don't have to worry about it later. And, it made it much easier to carry our furniture out the front door!

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.
