Here we go! After weeks and weeks of planning, quoting, revising, praying, and a little playing (Christmas break with extended family was just what we needed!), we have officially moved into DEMO!
The electricians actually surprised me Wednesday when they came to work! All the electrical boxes and lights in the two living areas, porch, and kitchen needed to be located, disconnected and removed. I think they had fun, as it didn’t matter if they torn up the walls! It looked like a scene from a cartoon when the cord was pulled and it rips up the wall above it.
A couple of issues surfaced. First, they discovered live wires just hanging in some of the walls - major fire and electrical hazard! We’re so thankful for the thoroughness of this electrical team! They also discovered that the ‘disconnected’ attic fan, was indeed disconnected but the live wire was just laying up in the attic! Good grief!!
We have realized over and over how poor our home inspection was. The attic fan issue was clearly a miss by the inspector - add that to the list!!
Stay tuned - we will be posted pictures as quickly as we can!
