90-Day Mark

We started this little master bedroom project the day before Christmas. So, we are at the 90-day mark, and while it's been a loooong project (and it's not done yet!!), it will make a difference.

Today's updates start with the Tool of the Day:
Since we don't have a sledgehammer, we decided to use the flat part of this ax, to tackle the ceramic tile in the master bath! With a few swings (ok, ALOT of swings), Joe had the floor in pieces in no time:
We wanted to get this done while we still have the dumpster, so this was the big project for this weekend. FYI, ceramic tile is a PAIN IN THE ASS to remove. And whoever put the backerboard down, did so with glue and 6,000 screws....:
Persistence paid off and we got most of it removed, and put a hunk of carpeting in it's place for now. I also finally removed the 2x4 in the ceiling that was hanging there from the former wall, and connected the wall where the old bath entrance was with a piece of new drywall:
Most importantly, we got the closet sanded and primed, and put up the clothes rods!!!! Yes, we will have to to take them down when we paint, but since we haven't even chosen the colors yet, I was itching to just get our clothes back in a closet. So, we have clothes! In our closet!

And in a purely psychological move, we also primed any walls that had that nasty red paint on them! NO MORE RED WALLS! Premature, yes. But the morale boost was worth it :)

I'm a little jealous of your well organized closet! And they're ripping out the bathroom floor in the apartment next to mine, it sure sounds like hard work.

Hi mebeth - you shoudl see the rest of the clothes scattered through the other closets...eesh! And that floor was tough! I kept waiting for the house to cave in to the basement...

Hi Tree! Ok, yes we hang our -shirts. Doesn't everyone?? Haha... We're determined to finish this damn project. Though looking back, I don't ever want to do this again. Next house - move-in ready condition!! Dammit.....
