This Ugly House

This is a log of This Ugly House. We purchased a 100 year old home that has not been updated since 1978. The idea behind this blog is to chronicle the trials and triumphants of updating This Ugly House and showing what a true beauty it can really be.

France conquers the Castle Part Deux

And here is the completed castle wall removed from the island. As you can see this REALLY opens it up in the kitchen. It was SO dark and confined. You can also see where we removed most of the orange tile that was stuck to the walls. The tile was actually glued to the drywall which pretty much ruined the drywall underneath. So we need to replace the drywall underneath now. Not too big of a deal.
This is another shot of the removed island top. You can really see the hole in the wall where I started to remove some of the drywall. I think that we need to get a shop vac to start cleaning up these messes. Our little vacuum is starting to get a workout cleaning up all this crap.
Trish thought she would be funny and include me in this shot since I took one of her. Of course I'm just standing around.
Even Amelia is happy with the castle walls being torn down.

Well, the dog is well groomed.

Hope you get the kitchen done soon. I love the blue "fridge" on the counter. What color is the room going to be?

You have a 'little bit' of work to do before you have to worry about mopping the kitchen floor. Good luck.

I will let you go back to work now.

As ever, Sherry
