who's idea was this??


the walls are down! the plaster in the dumpster and the lath sitting in the neighbors yard to be recycled into another old house. the "fabric" wall paper was discovered on the south wall of the room. not covering it fully but maybe left as a reminder of times past. interesting part about it is that it was under the lath/plaster wall. so the wall we took down must have been put up some time later (maybe when lath/plaster technology came about?). next we take up the old wood flooring that is under the vinyl and hopefully we hear from the contractor this week ... or we create a plan B?
we took a rest day today, a sunday drive of sorts ... ended up at the finley wildlife refuge. spotted our first pair of ducks, ringed neck and hooded merganser (male and female). the sure sign of spring is truly here ... 3 large turkey vultures floating over head.

Hmmm, that bucket by where the shower should be is bringing back memories of India...
