Over the Christmas and New Year’s weeks, we were able to get our bathrooms wired with new lights and plug fixtures. Our electrician did an amazing job installing recessed lights in the ceiling and GFI outlets. Once we get the walls and tiles installed, they will be looking good!!
Apart from that, I continued in my quest to rid the house of wallpaper and made significant progress towards that goal. I completed the kitchen and abut 98% of the laundry room. The next task is the downstairs half bathroom which is very small and should not take too long.
The first of what I am sure will be numerous “gotchas” surfaced when I discovered that the geniuses who lived there previously painted over wallpaper on the 2nd floor of the main hallway. The challenge is that this wall is located at the base of the stairs on the 1st floor and extends all the way to the 2nd floor ceiling. Removing this wallpaper will not be fun. Oh, the joy.
