Our Schoolhouse Reno: Demolition

Four months ago I announced that we’d be living in a camper (again). While I intended to update regularly on our process, I slightly underestimated how busy and crazy our life would be. It turns out that completely gutting and rebuilding the inside of your house, while living in a 24′ camper with a spouse, two kids, and a cat is actually kindof crazy.

But you probably knew that.

It was quite the adventure.

Looking back, it’s amazing to see just how far we’d come. But I’m getting ahead of myself…

This update covers demolition, which took basically every evening and weekend from July 14 to July 26, and includes tearing out walls and ceilings, painstakingly removing the original schoolhouse flooring (with the hopes of salvaging to reinstall) and pulling up the original 14″ rough sawn board subflooring.

Since a picture is worth a thousand words, I’ll stop trying to describe the process, and simply leave you with these:

It’s amazing, isn’t it?



Thanks so much for following along with our Schoolhouse Reno!
