About two weeks ago, Marn and I decided to tear into the shack because we have had this big plan on remodeling it into a guest house / rental for a while now. It was in pretty bad shape, so we were planning on a full remodel where we would pull everything out down to the studs/joists and start from scratch.
TECHNOLOGY NOTE (for those who don't know much about it):
If you click on the picture, it will show you larger version. Especially for you oldies losing your vision (Mom/Dad)
We started off by surveying the current state of the premises. It was pretty bad:
The kitchen /Bathroom
We had already started pulling up carpet.
The Living Room/Kitchen
Kitchen/Living Room - Front Door
While i was perusing around, my foot noticed a soft spot in the flooring.
"I wonder why my foot is sinking here?"
I continued on to do what anyone would naturally do in that situation - poke it with a crowbar.
"Holy Smokes! I just put a hole in the floor!"
Still contemplating on why the crowbar went through the floor:
Needless to say, this threw a brick at our window of dreams of remodeling the place on a small budget. In the end, we came to the decision that we are going to demolish the house by sledgehammer and saw, and send it off to the house graveyard in a giant dumpster. So far, I have gotten all of the utilities removed from the house, so it is just awaiting its ride to the house graveyard (that's the dumpster). I will update some pictures when we tear it down. So long, old moldy little shack. Were going to miss having you block the light from our neighbors giant back porch spotlight. <--(for Mike)
