Catch up on the renovation progress!
Hi all! It's been quite the week here! Our master bedroom project slowed down last week because of some prior events and trips, but things have picked up again over this past week with Karl working on it most evenings after work. Baby girl and I have been staying away because, well, Karl doesn't want me swinging a hammer "in my condition", and also just to be safe as there's speculation of drywall dust containing gluten (crazy, right?!).
Gotta say, having to take a step back and not being
In the future as I think back to our master bedroom renovation I'd much prefer to be able to think, "I knocked down that wall", but it's looking like I'll have to settle for, "I found and hung pretty pictures on that wall...". That doesn't sound quite as memorable to me, lol. Anyone else relate? Am I just weird? (nevermind, we already know I'm weird...)
Anywho, back to demo.
Most of the closet is now out, so by the end of the day tomorrow we should have the room's "original" closet completely knocked out!
Here's a quick recap of pix to show the gradual process over this past week:

Surprise, surprise...more plywood. Still have no idea why the past owner did this.
The past owner seemed to have gone to town with an overabundance of screws in the posts, so it took awhile to get them down.
Look! Original wood flooring! :) ...that the past owner put screws through...ggrrrrr.
The closet's header is simply a 2x4 and...you guessed it...plywood beneath drywall. That's all coming down tomorrow, which I'm really looking forward to as I know the room is gonna feel so much more open once it's out!
p.s. - I couldn't get any full pictures of the closet because of all the debris in the room, and I didn't want to risk getting stuck by a nail or screw and then have to get a tetanus shot while preggo, soooo...this will have to do. ;)
Yay for progress!
After the closet's demo is complete, we'll be running some wiring and drywalling, mudding, and sanding the back wall of where the closet had been.
...and then comes what I'm so excited to see happen - primer and paint!
Stay tuned! Also, I'll be posting on Instagram this weekend to show the header coming down, so follow along!
Have a good weekend, y'all!
