Our Demo Surprises

So the demo of our kitchen began this past Friday night. The plan was to start ripping the kitchen out and remove the ceiling in the sunroom-which had leaked awhile ago. The kitchen end of things went fairly smoothly.

Our surprise
So we were going to try and find the leak in the sunroom ceiling, repair it, patch up the drywall and be done. Well...our house is over 50 years old...and we found a 50 year old problem....
 ROT. A LOT. HOLES BIG ENOUGH TO FIT YOUR HEAD IN.

So obviously we were a little taken back by what we found. It is pretty much out of our league. And pretty much guaranteed to cost a pretty penny or two. Pennies we don't have. So if you'd like to donate........no seriously. Insert tears [here].......


On the bright side part of our kitchen went in today.
