First day demo

The house has some pretty terrible tile. It’s a clay Saltillo tile. We want to remove about 2000 ft² of this disaster. On Thursday I began with the master bedroom. I bought a 23 pound demolition hammer from harbour freight and a 2″ chisel to make my way through it. So far it’s worked pretty well.

Some areas it comes up easy and other areas it’s really difficult. But after the day I was able to finish the master bedroom.

I ordered a scraper so that I can get all the thin set off. That won’t arrive until Monday, so I will continue with rest house until that point.

new home!

After many years of wanting to buy our own house, it finally happened! It was no small miracle to be sure. After all, we’ve only lived in the country less than half a year which would normally disqualify us from a mortgage. Through a series of events, we were able to connect with people that could make it happen. No small thing.

Last Wednesday we were able to close on our new home. A home that was initially way out of our price range.

We are excited.

domestic violence

Scout has no control over his excitement. This often annoys Tila. Sometimes she has to bite his face to regain control. Then it gets infected. Good times.

Condes

Yrem, Heidi, and the older boys came into town yesterday for some xmas shopping. It was wonderful to see them. We haven’t seen them since we left HMO. We went to Culinary Dropout for dinner and it is now my favorite place in Tucson. We had perogies for appetisers and then I went with the fish-and-chips. I paid the price dearly the next morning. Still, it was mostly worth it.
