I cannot find the video of the ceiling being brought down, so i am posting photos of the aftermath of that. You can see all of the lathe and debris on the floor. Then everything else was gutted including the floor joists. The house was built in 1850s. There was so much termite damage and rot / dry rot that it had to be replaced. The one photo shows all of the dust we were living with for several weeks and months. I just want to thank the people that helped with the hard demo and clean up. Enjoy the pictures.
I was afraid to try to walk on the joists to cross the floor, so my husband put down temporary plywood so I could get to the other side of the house without having to go outside. I am such a chicken. Maybe because I am not very coordinated. I was afraid I would fall. I almost did even with the plywood down. Just call me GRACE!!
Cooking was not happening at this point, unless you could do it in the microwave. We are so sick of take out!! Project moved along fairly quickly with only two people working on it.
