Demo Day!

Yesterday was a very exciting and tiring day.  We demo'd the upstairs for the future new staircase!

After popping off the door casing, my suspicions about MORE painted over wallpaper were confirmed.  However, this wall paper looks like it was skim coated and painted over, so I think that this is going to be staying.  There are just a few barely noticeable seam lines that I am sure I can even out with some mud.

With these walls open up here, I can even better visualize the space.  The back will be pushed back another 4-5 feet from what you see here and the lower side wall will be completely open to the dining room below.  I am super excited and I think it's going to look great!

And i'll end this post with more demo carnage. :)



  1. That looks so messy, but so fun! I've been waiting to renovate an older home, so this was really cool to see!


    1. SUPER messy but also a lot of fun. Not really much else like throwing a sledgehammer through a wall! :-)
