In the next two weeks, we will complete the post-flood fix up project at 812 Hallbrook. Scroll down to see the progress. We'll continue to post photos as we do more work.
A full description of the project and multiple ways for you to join the fun can be found here.
Tim has on safety glasses. Always.
No paint on anything but the wall
Finish nailers are always a good sign that the finish is near
In goes the linoleum
That's Bailey in the background.
Finally the house is getting put back together.
The ¾ inch tongue and groove sub-floor replace three layers of ¼ inch plywood. The middle layer was still wet when we extracted it.
Making it up
Tim's the only one pictured but there were at least four fools trying to jack up the wall to extract a four foot section of the sill plate.
It got done, nobody got hurt, and now we know how lift up a house.
Filling a can with parts of a house
Somehow, we managed to fill up a trash can after two days of demolition.
Still, after the bathrooms were demolished the next weekend there was even more to haul.
So many nails, screws, and sore muscles
Five layers of flooring hurt coming up. The next day nobody was moving well.
That's Jeannie Sullivan running the fridge through a thorough wash.
The kitchen before
The hall bath before
Everything but the tub came out. When the floor came up, we found out that the joists would also need to be replaced.
Master bath before
The joists under the tub were compromised by water damage and had to be replaced.
