Hepatitis Trailer

We are making serious progress.  The ceiling is kilzed, and we got a lot cleared out.  The falling apart pantry is gone, as are the dishwasher (whoever heard of a gas-run dishwasher?), washer and dryer.  Quick fact - if you list something for free on a site where most people are selling things for outrageous prices, people will jump on it like kids at fat camp on a cake. Thank you facebook! 

Marcus hauling off what used to be the scary front porch

This is the weather stripping on the back door.  Yes, that is cardboard and staples.

Pudding cup in the walls.

Terrifying ass goblin Marcus found behind the refrigerator. 

Where the wallpaper used to be!

SuperFluffy peeled it all off!  It was 8 billion degrees in there.

Terrifying geese painted on the kids room wall

I was sad I had to paint over all of this, but the walls had to be sealed.  There was so much filth that it had soaked into the walls and sub-flooring.

Cool right?

You can see some of the staining here.

It was pretty bad here.

Moose, our new puppy helping.  He's 9 months old and 65lbs.

Chewy happiness.

Bridget, my brother's dog, is not amused by Moosey Wolfson.

Luckily, they used vinyl paint for the inside of the medicine cabinet so I was able to use a phillips screwdriver to get the screws out, rather than the allen wrenches I would normally need. 

Medicine cabinet after I took it off.  I'm going to clean it, kilz it, and use it as a shelf.  Bam!

Top layer = vinyl paint.  Middle layer = contact paper.  Last layer = actual wallpaper.

I think we found the leak.
