Working on two projects this week. First, is the stairs. The pic below is of the handmade square nails holding the stairs together, as we are fixing it up after seventy years of neglect.
The spindles removed for stripping
Another picture of a handmade nail. They're just so cool.
And the other project is the bathroom demo that turned into a full on mould remediation nightmare. Below is a picture of a screw from a power box that is rubbing against the shower pipe.
Another picture of the power box. Note the rust around it. This is but one example of the idiocy that has gone on in this house.
The bathroom has now been stripped of all mould bearing drywall etc., and is ready to have some insulation added, and then new drywall.
A view of the roof in the bathroom. Looks like the roof is also a culprit in this scenario.
Note the lack of insulation around the retro-fitted windows. Thanks window installing idiots. Appreciate that.
And here is the real culprit in this saga. A rusted out tub spout which caused a long term leak that ended up with lots of mould.
The next post will show some after shots of the work we've done in our front entrance and in the bathroom.
