That's exactly what we're doing (not intentionally).
The house was covered with industrial carpet. Industrial in the truest sense of the word.... rough, heavy, ugly (gray-ish dark blue, ladies and gentlemen - the most potent color to enhance the dreariness of a house.). It's in a pretty good condition, actually, but it has got to go! See it for yourselves:
Somebody sure loved their turquoise. And fluorescent lighting.
The turquoise wall on the other side of the room is actually painted wallpaper. Apparently somebody didn't
One of the bedrooms was covered with wooden paneling on three of the walls. Why just three, no idea. I stopped asking questions a while back.
(horror! How do you like the mismatched paneling?)
So we ripped off the carpet, padding, tacking throughout the house and those wall panels. Here's the pile of rubbish to be hauled away.
(There's more carpet in each bedroom. The bright light is not heaven shining down... it's the skylight.)
Good riddance - we're done with demolition! Or are we? More to come!
