The original homeowner is out of Old Savannah & what is the first thing we did? We started tearing stuff up!!
Demo is so much fun and exciting!!! This is the time when you can let loose and not worry (too much) about damaging anything . . . it’s coming out, right? And you never know what you may uncover??
Shiny & New
We definitely discovered some unexpected things during this process. Remember the shag carpet (aka ‘indoor green lawn’)? We couldn’t resist the temptation to go ahead and peel at back the ‘green lawn’!! We just needed a peak!! We were just as pleased as we had anticipated being!
Remember this sight?
…well look what we found underneath!!!!
Look at these solid oak floors!?!? What finish should we use???
Wallpaper Woes . . .
The dining room, kitchen, and hall bath all had walls covered in wallpaper. You can imagine the cloud of dread looming over us.
Our initial concern was the age of the paper and that we would not only remove the wallpaper, but take Sheetrock, as well. So imagine the relief we felt when we started to remove the dining room paper in full sheets! Sheer Joy!!!
Now lets hope the other rooms come off as easy!!!!
