We've been working on the house since April 2007. I pulled the wallpaper off this East Bedroom in June 2007.
Like a wild animal, I let the room get away from me, filling it with moving boxes, furniture and odds and ends. Mostly "odds". The room became a jungle known as Junk Room #2.
Today, the junk is gone and we got down to the nitty gritty of repairing the walls.
I began by brushing and vacuuming the sandy surface of the plaster walls. Below the windows you can see the quarter sized holes where Jon blew in insulation. The room was so warm today we had to open up the window--even though it was snowing outside.
