I can’t hide it… I am a home wrecker….
Don’t judge me.
I am not alone. My husband, Marc, is one too…
But I guess since we are wrecking our own home, it is okay….isn’t it?
There is nothing more satisfying, I think, then working side by side with your spouse working on home renovations. Our remodel project is bigger than Marc and I could ever handle on our own, but we are making sure to work on whatever tasks that we can handle, and we are having a blast doing it!
Together, Marc and I fully removed the wall that separated our kitchen from our dining room. It took us two days but we did it! First we had to remove all the items that were in our cabinets (Don’t ask me where anything is – spices, glasses, bowls and plates are scattered all over the house). Then we removed the cabinets. To take the wall down, Marc started cutting holes in the wall, starting at the top of the wall by the ceiling, with a utility knife. Then we were able to rip off pieces of sheetrock.
My main job was to break the sheetrock into small pieces and bag them. Aren’t I lucky?
After all that was done, Marc used a sawzall to cut up the two by fours that the sheetrock was attached to. I removed all the nails from the wood so that we could save and use for firewood in the winter – giving new meaning to the words – burning down the house!
Next step we will be moving the front door….
It may sound crazy, but doing work around the house with Marc is one of my favorite things… Do you and your significant other enjoy doing something unusual together?
