Eve of Destruction

This past weekend we got a 14 yard bin in the driveway out in front of the house and did some clean up and demolition. We threw out our old washer and dryer that we plopped in the garage, some construction debris and started demolishing the kitchen walls and ceiling. The walls were lathe and plaster and the ceiling was cement board. Everything you hear about this type of work is true. It is hard, physically demanding, and makes a hell of a mess. The only thing good about it is the beer when youre done! By noon Monday the bin was almost full and that included all of the kitchen and part of the ceiling in the basement below the kitchen. As far as demolition is concerned we still need to do the foyer and the stairway and upstairs landing as well as more ceiling in the basement. This is going to have to wait however as sometime soon the concrete pumper truck will be visiting the house and we cannot get another disposal bin until that job is completed.
