The Man just called to say he finally wrestled the permit out of the building department! woo hoo!

Demolition starts Monday, he said he would text me pictures. I'm so freaking excited.

You'd think I wouldn't be this excited to spend a boatload of cash just to get rid of something really awful.

It's kind of like divorce, now that I think about it.

  1. Katy loved your comment today over at BC re: blogs, I conquered. Hope you got all the good stuff out of the shack before demo, it's going to feel so good getting those progress pics.

  2. I am so excited for you. Hope you post your demo pics. Congratulations!

  3. I've never been so excited to watch something get torn down!


  4. Congrats on your demo...
    My hubby and i spent the past 8 months demoing the inside of our home then putting it back together... so I can feel your excitement!

  5. Katy,
    In answer to your question about Madison's closet door. Her door was ordered full sized and we cut some from the top and bottom in order to make it fit. We loved the look of the ladder style doors, but the choices at Home Depot weren't exactly what we were looking for and finding 16 used doors that matched or even came close wasn't working either. We chose a craftsman style door instead. When we purchased the doors, Home Depot was offering a free solid core upgrade... sold! The solid core made it easier to alter the door. I had to laugh at you removing the old bath tub from your place.... I paid $350 for mine and it looked just like the one you removed! I am enjoying following your blog and am looking forward to watching you build (wow) your new beach house! You are inspiring!

  6. Love love LOVE the demolition/divorce analogy! SPLUTTER! As always, looking forward to the progress pics!

  7. thanks for your comment on my blog pointing out my lack of subscription options. i had cleaned up the sidebar awhile ago and apparently was a little over-zealous. 2012 is looking better than last year, so cheers to that!

    i'm so excited to watch the progress on your beach house. i know it sounds lame, but i'm so inspired by your tenacity.

  8. HEY young 'un, just a comment on YOUR comment on my blog (gracias) don't have to wait till your wee ones have flown their safe nest to actually take a vacation ALONE...all grown up! Mi casa es su casa. So many wonderful women all over the world whose homes and hearts are open...I'm just sayin...'


Welcome to my three ring circus. Cake? Tequila? Pardon me while I cut this lumber and yell at my kids for the 100th time --

About Me

My photo
For many years I was a mechanical engineer by day, a house renovator by night, and a single mom. I previously built a tiny house on Tybee Island that I sold in 2015. Then I lost my day job, met Prince Charming, and now work full time demolishing (fixing) his lake house. ;) Stop by for the house stuff, stay for the never-ending disasters, pianos falling out of the sky, floods, threats of financial ruin, & panic attacks. It's like house flipping meets the zombie apocalypse! with lots of kids!
