Demolition Part 2

Here is the second part of the house demolition. We knocked down the rest of the drywall and several walls, tore up the floors, and started with the roof. The leaves were falling and so were our walls! The weather was turning cooler, but our enthusiasm for the project was heating up! Okay, enough silly puns! 😉

Also, I apologize for the poor photo quality. I don’t have a great camera and I didn’t have an iPhone at that point. I hope to someday own a DSLR, but for now it’s just a dream! 🙂

Here are the pictures!

These are the BURNED electrical wires that were in the house! Can you say “Fire hazard”?

The floor. Yes, you can see downstairs – a little disconcerting to me.

Pops and his ladder! 🙂

Next up is our new roof! The roof was “high” on our list of things to do before winter. Oh goodness, I guess I’m feeling punny today! 🙂


Two very eager workers!!


Part of the old roof torn off


The first half of the roof completed! My Pops and Nana chose a green metal roof. I think that the green ties in nicely with the surrounding trees and  I LOVE metal roofs. The sound of the rain is so calming and since I have an upper level bedroom, I will get to hear it well!


Here is the completed roof and just in time for the snow! Actually, it’s not all finished at this point. Pops wanted to wait to do the back half of the kitchen until he added the addition so that he could tie those areas together.

Have a Happy Wednesday! 🙂
