Tearing down the house

Sunday, we started down a path from which there is no return.  

We tore off the ceiling in the middle room of our house.  As most of you know, the ceilings in our house are low.  It takes a bit of getting used to, even if you are Meistersized.  When we tore off the first layer of ceilings, which was a cardboard tiled drop ceiling, it revealed a plaster layer.  This is where the fun began.  With the help of a 2x4 we ripped down the ceiling rather quickly. 

Then it just left us with a mess that took 2 hours to clean up.

Here is a video that shows the whole room.  
This gave us 2-3 inches on ceiling height, plus the 
6 inches up to the floor of the second floor.

I'll have more on this adventure soon.

I guess you didn't get enough of this remodeling when we lived on Clover Hill!- Mom

I liked the Meistersized ceiling...at least I didn't need to duck while walking through your house;)

Good luck with the renovation!
