Bedroom demolition

To make things beautiful you have to start with deconstruction.

So yesterday afternoon we started deconstructing one of our guest bedrooms to take it back to the bare bones before we start adding the beauty back in.

First to go its the awful tongue in grove ceiling, which came down quite easily, but their was a huge amount of dust and debris above it, anyone from outside would have thought the house was on fire with the amount of dust looking like smoke coming out of the windows.

How do you get rid of all the rubbish? Easy chuck it out of the window………….



And there you have it a bare to the rafters ceiling, now we just have to take out all the rotten ceiling boards, replace them, put in insulation, re plaster and paint it, mmm not much to do then.


Next job stripping the lovely flowery wallpaper.
