Renovating- a big job.
After procrastinating for about a year, my husband and I finally decided to tackle the worst room in our house- the laundry room.
This room has not been touched for 40+ years, and beginning with a leak in the ceiling from the bathroom upstairs, it needs help.
So far we have removed the ceiling and one and a half walls of lath and plaster.
We have discovered large, hand-hewn beams (our house having been built in the late 1830s),
square nails of a few different lengths,
and evidence of a previous stove.
We also discovered how much insulation is in the outside, north-facing wall–
We are doing this reno in our spare time, which means an hour here and an hour there. This may take us until Christmas, but I’m okay with that. Of course, we’d like to have that wall insulated before then, but as long as we are making progress and doing a quality job, I am happy. It will be the nicest room in the house!
Renovation is a dusty, sweaty job but a worthy pursuit.
