Nasty work done!

This last week saw the removal of mouldy insulation and fibreboard from the basement. Upstairs, we focused on patching the plaster and lath and we actually began to paint the wainscotting.

So all the really scary clean up is finished, which means people are welcome to drop by the studio and attempt to visualize the final product.

If you find yourself on Hwy 11, (also called Yonge Street or Simcoe Road 4) take a chance and see if I'm in - 6588 green number, 3rd driveway on the right after the cemetery in Barclay (that's Innisfil Beach Road and Hwy 11) while driving southbound. Just take your GPS!

Deconstruction Complete

Week one comes to a close and we have finished the tearing out and pulling up. All those tiny nails - I'm exhausted but look at that beautiful floor!

Madly into Renovations

Well, it is now day 3 of renovations! After getting the property earlier this week, I was so excited by ripping down walls that I completely forgot to add a new post. I have to say that the Tyrone School House is beginning to reassert its identity. We have exposed the original walls and trim and tonight just before leaving I ripped up the smelly old carpet and crumbled away the subfloor to reveal a most amazing hardwood floor in pristine condition - wow, more than I had hoped for!
