The first thing we had to do is get rid of the fleas before we even attempted to start removing things, especially the carpets.
I had already removed the carpets and trashed items before I took the pictures, for the most part.
Here we go:
|This is were the dilapidated pantry shelves were. We ripped them out and will be completely rebuilding this area.|
|There is faux brick surrounding the area where the oven is installed and the furnace next to that as you start down the hallway.|
|As you can see, we have started to prime the walls. We had to take down the old ceiling fan that didn't work. The plywood|
sub-floor turned out to be in good shape under the carpet. Lots of washing with bleach.
|Looking into the bathroom (ugh). A mess, but surprisingly the original seventies bathtub is in really good|
condition..... avacado-green and all.
|Where the washer goes. The dryer sits on the left side of the BR door.|
|The back bedroom, which we opted to use. This mobile home has one in the front and one in the back. We removed the closet to have more room as the bedrooms only measure 11'4" x 11'4".|
|Bleach, bleach, bleach|
|A bit blurry, but the closet that we took out.|
|Bathroom again. You can see what the main priority is.|
|I almost didn't include this, it was so gross.|
|Looking from the back bedroom to the back door.|
|Back out to the kitchen area. You can see there has been more priming done. The handsome ginger cat is Punke and|
the dog attached to the tail that you can see is Pongo.
|This is the front bedroom that we will be using for our clothes and my sewing room. It also has a WC that be are going to take out and install a utility sink where I am able to dye fabrics etc.|
So this is a bit of what we are up against. We have stopped, looked at each other more than once and said "what were we thinking?" But we remind ourselves of what it will be when we finish, and it will be good.
