Not For The Faint of Heart

Dudes. Do you wanna see some scary stuff? Well grab your teddy bears and safety blankets...

The house that we bought was pretty bad to start with...


Then the termite repair started...


Bathroom before and after...




And just the post destruction picture of my future craft room...


Um, yes. That is our house up on jacks. Our contractor had a nasty health issue that needed to be tended to last week. So we were a bit more open to the elements for a little longer than desired. I guess they patched him up for now, and supposedly he's back to work this week. Eeek. Send him some nice healing thoughts, we promise we'll take it easy on him, and hopefully we'll all come out the other end of this process none the worse for the wear...

OMG! Its worse than your previous descriptions...and you haven't even shown the electric work! But those were lovely curtains in the laundry room! I'll bring an animal trap in October to catch all the furry things that decided to come in those holes while the work was on-going.
Love,
Dad

is that a hole in the floor of the bathroom before you tore it out? who lived there before? Trolls?

It has so much potential. I just got all caught up on your life (this page view anyway) and wow! Croup and fires and nosebleeds and houses and knitting oh my!

Someday there will be "after" shots and how proud you will be...
