Let's go tear up stuff

Even though we still have a bit of snow on the ground...it was 40 something degress today and a lot of it is gone. and it is supposed to be in the 50s for thursday and friday. so my sis and i decided it would be a good time to go to the beast and the ugly duckling (UD) and do a little work.

So tomorrow i head for Illinois for a little demolition. i just love playing with pry bars and crow bars. tearing up stuff is FUN. we plan on tearing out the covering over the back door that leads to the garage. the former owner had closed it up so the renters could not get into the garage. which was a good thing seeing as how they trashed the house.

And we will probably take at least part of the wood fence down so we can get to the garage without going around the block. there is a bunch of old furniture and crap stuck in a cubbyhole by the back door so we will drag that out to the garage and store it out there till i can get a dumpster to haul it all off.

We will spend thursday night at the beast and on friday scrape off more wallpaper there. scraping wallpaper is really the pits....but what you gonna do...it's got to come off.

And i'm going to put bigger padlocks on the doors...the ones on there are tiny. i need to go by the home center to look at doors and make arrangements to have them all replaced.

I'll post some pictures of destruction on saturday or sunday once i get back home. if you have no plans for the next couple days...bring your gloves and work boots and a pry bar and come and have fun with us. there's plenty of work to go around.
