celings are gone


Today was another productive Saturday. All of the ceilings are now removed along with the nasty insulation that was in the attic. We now mostly have an empty shell. I had to have the roll-off emptied again today which makes it twice for the week. That’s a lot of trash to the dump.

Yun and I then went shopping for some things. We went to Gerson’s per Jeff and Beth’s recommendation. There is a lot of garbage there, but they do have plenty of treasures as well. The store sells used household items; such as sinks, toilets, bathtubs, kitchens, etc. We found a really nice bathtub that was brand new which we intended to purchase, but it was sold while we contemplated purchasing it. What a bummer! They had a lot of windows and doors for a really reasonable price, so we expect we’ll be making plenty of purchases from there.

We did end up getting a really nice kitchen sink today, but it will be quite some time before we’re anywhere near that stage. It was such a good deal we couldn’t pass it up.

We have a lot of stuff we’re trying to sell in the garage as well. I put up one item on ebay this afternoon that sold about an hour later. This is probably an indication that I sold it for too little.

The next step is to remove the toilets and bathtub to prepare the sewage pipes before we pour the cement to level the house. After that we will probably have the new windows and doors installed and then framing can begin.
