roof is done

The roof was in terrible condition when we bought the house. We used that to negotiate a significantly lower price. On Wednesday the roofers finished the roof and now it looks so much better.

master toilet gone

My jack hammer broke last night…well, the handle broke. I bought the extended warranty, so I went and got a new one without any problem.

Tonight I used my new hammer to get up all of the remaining thin set in the master bedroom. Then I removed the toilet and removed the tile in the master toilet.

Landscaping

We have a lot of area that has been neglected. The front round about was a mess and had a lot of pack rat nests. We used a guy we know from Michoacan to come take care of that. He eviscerated the pack rat nests and removed the dying cactus and weeds.

kitchen tile mostly gone

The kitchen has been the most difficult area for tile removal. It was a challenge to get it out of there. Very little tile remains.

1 day closer to complete tile removal

Last night I finished everything up to the kitchen and the laundry room. The dining room area was really difficult to get up. Yun swept the tile out of the way as I hammered it up. It was a good combo to get it done as fast as possible.

I am hoping to get at least half of the kitchen done tonight. Yun is in Hermosillo for the weekend, so I plan to have it all done before she returns on Sunday.

The next challenge (on a long list of challenges) is to remove all of this debris from the property. I fear that will be costly. I have considered buying a trailer and putting a hitch on the Element, but that will be a lot of trips to the dump.

Roofers will start prepping the roof tonight. I reconnected with Jesus yesterday who is a spectacular electrician. He will be out at the house later this afternoon to quote me on a main hub upgrade (from 150w to 200w).

Osiel will be out shortly after Jesus to get me a quote on some landscaping. We have some pack rat nests that need to be eradicated immediately.

demo exhaustion

I am so tired of jack hammering up this tile. I hate it. My back is destroyed. Maybe 2 more days and we are done.

demo exhaustion

The demo process is getting tiring. The saltillo is terrible. Sometime it comes up easy… other times it is do difficult. I am so tired of the jack hammering.

I hope to be done in a week. My body is tired.

We now have an idea when the tile was installed.

demo day 2

Matt and Dana came over today to help us with some demo. Matter my continued with the jackhammering, finishing the master closet and then we moved on to the hallway period from the hallway we moved into the formal living room area. Progress is so much faster with 2 people doing this.

We also ripped out the carpet in the 2 spare bedrooms and the concrete underneath the carpet is in great condition and will be ready for the new flooring.

And then beer reward.
