So the Walls Won’t Come Tumbling Down

Now we’re at the messy stage.  I forgot how messy.  Right now half the house is covered in plastic to prevent the mess from the remodeling waft through and cover every single surface with dust.  Not that it’s helping much.  This is called the Drywall Stage.

I have a weekend houseguest on the way who has been forwarned, but I don’t think she can really appreciate the conditions she and her daughter are going to be asked to deal with when she gets here.  Again, the Holiday Inn is on speed-dial.

We made it through a variety of inspections including electrical and insulation so now my house is filled with Mariachi music as a terrific team of Hispanic drywallers are doing what they do so well; tape and bed and sand.  It’s the sanding that creates such a horrific mess.

It’s all beginning to come together and look like a house again.

I keep reminding myself, it will all be worth it.  It will all be worth it.  It will all be worth it….

All it takes is a few buckets of spackle, a few boxes of tape, lots of plastic and voila!
