The beginnings of renovation is demolition

There were four 30 yard dumpsters worth of junk we hauled out of that house. It included all the drywall, insulation, 4 unused chimneys, walls, floors, old slats, rat carcasses, old toilets and much more. I can say we only because I did help with demo for a few days. It barely counts but I got dirty a few times.

The roof was rotting so we took off the back of the house down to block. We built a new wall on top of the block. It gave us the opportunity to raise the ceiling 10 inches and a steeper roof.

    What a great opportunity! 🙂 I know from helping a few brothers with old houses that what you are doing is a lot of work and often very YUCKY work. But I’m pretty sure it will be worth it! Keep posting photos. 🙂
