What a mess...paint over more paint, over wallpaper over MORE wallpaper=tear down sheet rock and start fresh!
It's a good sign...Daryl is STILL smiling...granted, this is only the beginning!
He unearthed old, thin, crappy insulation underneath, prompting him to replace the insulation with some that is thicker and better. Nothing but the best for little Hunter!
Keep at it, Big D! You're doing a great job!
Believe it or not, there IS hard wood floor underneath this mess!!!!
I made the mistake of trying to peek in, when Daryl had camera in hand. Damn him! LOLAnd THIS, ladies and gents, is MOLD that was growing underneath the walls (due to an a/c unit leak last year.) Thank GOODNESS we decided to tear the sheet rock down cuz otherwise we never would have known!!!We have absolutely NO overhead lighting at all in this house--except for the kitchen. So my awesome, fabulous husband (who is NOT an electrician, mind you!) with a little over the phone help from an out of town friend/electrician, re-wired the entire room (which was NOT up to code, due to the house being built in the 1940's, when it wasn't required) AND put in an overhead light! AAAAAHHHHH...I swear I can hear a choir of angels singing right now!
And then Daryl was busily re-insulating the room. I can't wait till he starts sheet rocking so we will have WALLS! More to come as it gets done, I promise...
