Jody and his assistant Jason arrived shortly after 8 a.m. They set to work straight away, unloading tools, sheetrock, moulding, wood and a bunch of other stuff.
By 10 a.m. the upstairs bathroom was completely gutted right down to the studs…except for the bathtub.
They worked non stop until about 12:30 p.m. at which time they broke for lunch which I prepared for them…Cornish pasties, mashed potatoes, salad…and chocolate cake for dessert.
By 1:15 p.m. they were back to work and by 2:30 p.m. all the insulation and sheet rock had been installed.
The black and white tile on the floor is original to the house which we would have loved to keep but it unfortunately was not salvageable.
Shortly after 3 p.m. Jody and Jason called it a day and left to go and get the 15+ gallons of paint and additional supplies. Tomorrow there will be 4 men here working, so we should really see some progress made by the end of the day.
And where will I be?
At my Tuesday hook-in from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. Yay!
And no…I’m not going to show you the mess that we’re living in.
