Demo the Sequel

Soooo....Lucy strikes again!

My dear, sweet, wonderful husband tore off the first piece of paneling only to find this:

The drywall went down to just below where the trim would be....errrrrrrrrrrrr! Then to make matters worse, the "new" drywall was really only patch jobs here and there on the original plaster. Oooops!

Jim was a trooper and started tearing out all the old stuff....except he ran into problems with the corner by our closet: (see the nice bare spot in the corner where ceiling tiles used to be?!?). Now I will have not only new walls, but a new ceiling too!...and a new shower and closet because they never put a real wall in between the closet and the shower, just a rigged piece of paneling that they glued the shower surround to :/

Corey's birthday party is Friday evening...right now our bathroom looks like this:Thank God for my Wonderful Husband, Mendards gift cards and drywall being dirt cheap now that the housing market has tanked!

Seriously? That's the stuff my nightmares are made of! In our second house it "began" with tearing out an old oven that didn't work, only to find that it was being held up by a TERMITE MOUND.
