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

Here is another shot of the half removed. The dogs weren't cooperating well with me for this picture.

Here is a pic of half of the tower removed. Note our temporary supports for the other half of the tower. Trisha had a heck of a time with the first half. It must have weighed at least 300 lbs. and she helped lift that all the way down into the basement. I want to use them for cabinets in the basement workshop.


Our first damage incident. One of the spikes on top of the tower caught one of the grills for the light fixture in the kitchen. It fell to the floor and broke into several pieces. Whoops...

Here is the top of the castle tower removed. Let's hope it's a little lighter now.

Trish doing all the work while I took some pictures for the site. Here she is taking screws out of the top off the tower so we can take that off before the tower comes down.
