Check out the shots of the 2nd day, well actually a half day with 3 guys for several hours and then myself and Michelle kicking in for a few hours more. At this rate it will be down in a few days of work, then the denailing and packing after that. See the surprise under the linoleum in the kitchen to start.
several layers of linoleum floors revealed our dark past. When will we learn our lessons about war? Who would think the reminder would be here?
Someone put just one newspaper under the floor. You can even see the images in the bottom of the linoleum flooring. Sad headlines.
Here you can see the image of the paper in the flooring.
Here is the rest of the action.
Here is where the pantry and storage area off the kitchen was once walled in.
Some of the incredible flooring from the attic.
An idea of the piles of wood coming out.
ceiling joist added to create a second floor long after the original house was built.
See how simple the construction is on a single walled house.
Here you see the flooring being peeled back in the attic.
Looking down the way you see the walls being peeled off.
Here you see the wall paper that was once put on the inside of the 1×12 wall boards to keep the wind from blowing through the walls as they were only one board with a batten over the outside gap.
Lots of pretty wallpaper.
Home to rats and mice too.
Before they peeled it off.
Here are the guys that did the bulk of the work today. Michelle was also helping but she took the pictures and we did not get any of her. Perhaps tomorrow.
Here is me in the attic area peeling floors up.
Here is Jesse peeling some trim off.
There is pitbull on the porch.
Here is Carlos
Thanks for following along with this salvage job and I hope you will be able to track what we build with the parts and pieces when we are done.
Now that is a pile of flooring,
Here it the storage room before Carlos and Michelle got done with it.
See the battans that cover the gaps in the 1×12 that come off first. They sell for $11.50 per foot.
Here is what we started with and now have less than two full days on the house with 4-5 people working.
