Here's just a little bit of the mess inside. When the girls and I arrived this morning, all of this (along with everything else in the kitchen and laundry room) had been torn out and brought outside. The girls and I worked upstairs, that's in relatively good shape. The girls cleaned the walls, I removed old hardware from around the windows, killed wasps, went downstairs and filled three large garbage cans full of sheetrock and trim moulding that was torn out of the office. I also removed all the carpet tack strip from the office and completely scrapped it out and vacuumed with the shop vac. Whew! I was so tired by the time I got to the barn, I could hardly lift the fork to clean the stalls.
Then we went to our lot and played with concrete stain on the little practice square. We tried eight different combinations with three different stains. Before the sun went down, we scrubbed it with baking soda and water to neutralize the reaction. Since it was wet, I didn't take any pictures. We'll get some tomorrow and decide which color(s) we like.
As for me, I need a good bath and I'm going to hit the hay. Horse show tomorrow for the girls and me. Steve will be scoring the concrete. When this house is finished, we're going to need a LONG vacation!!!
