Week 1:  getting started 

The renovation began on Thursday Sept. 21.   Rented a 30yrd dumpster ($500) and hired three laborers ($400) for a full day of demo.

All the walls and the bedroom ceilings were covered with paneling which we wanted to remove.  Unfortunately, not a single piece of salvageable sheet rock was found underneath.

Wall to wall to ceiling panels:

By the end of the first day, more than half the walls were gone.


And I had five stitches in my forehead thanks to a flying 2x4.

Running total for renovation:  $4,500
