So I went to work at Frankenhouse on Saturday. It was probably the hottest, most humid day of the year so far! Oh good lord! My clothes were soaking wet after 10 minutes. And I wasn’t even doing anything!!
Anyway, because I was not going to be able to work at the house on Sunday I worked my ass off. That is both literal and figurative.
My task was to start taking down the studs in the future bathroom. That means the two hall closets needed to be no more. After analyzing the order I needed to take these out, I was able to get 2 out before I got stuck. Seriously.
After some thinking, prying, and pulling I was able to pretty much get those two closets and the original door gone. Nick even commented that I did more than he expected. Then this Delicate Flower wilted!
Nick has taken out some of the old pipes in this picture so that I can take the original walls down. We need to reframe those walls for a pocket door, so it all needs to go. But you can see what it’ll look like.
While I was working on the bathroom, Nick was pulling up the den floor and taking down the studs between the kitchen and the den.
