First Day on the Mud Room . . .

I got quite a bit done today in the mud room.  First, I got the drywall off of two walls ~


Now this would have driven me crazy knowing that the insulation was sitting under the drywall upside-down!!  It probably would have kept me up at night!!  LOL!!


Just full of creepy crawlies!!

And this nasty stuff was the old insulation that mice had made bedding and a nest out of!!  Luckily the mice were no longer living here!!


Once I got the insulation down and the spiders and snakes all vacuumed out with my trusty shop vac here are how the two walls look ~





And this is that corner that used to look like this ~


Then when I thought I was all done for the day, the guy I had called this morning to find out about moving the water heaters and the stove and taking them to the dump called and said he could come over this afternoon with one of his sons (he has 10 children and 8 of them are boys!!) and remove those three items.  So here is what things look like now ~


Before!!


After!!


Before!!  

I had to drain both heaters.  Never even though about it until I moved this one out of the closet and and it was dang heavy.  That is what the little plastic container was for.  I watered the tall, tall, tall grass with the water I removed!  Waste not want not!!


After!!  

I will have to replace this flooring because the water heater has leaked and I could probably just put my foot right through the flooring at that dark spot.  But I don't think I will!


Before!!


After!!

Wow, that was so great to get those three things out of here!!  And the best part is that Doug (the man who removed them) is going to put them in his scrap pile instead of taking them to the dump to scrap and so instead of $30.00 plus dump fees, he was only going to charge me $20.00!!  Yikes, that is unheard of - I gave them $40.00 and still feel like I was ripping them off.

And here is the work horse that got all the work done today!!  She is tired and ready for bed!!  'Night and see you tomorrow ~

  2. You did loads of work and should be tired as well as proud! Every bit of deconstruction helps in the reconstruction efforts. Hope today is a better day for you!
