This weekend we tore out the walls in our Spartan Royal Mansion. The (soon to be) mobile art studio is now down to her bare bones. There was some pretty scary stuff in the walls! We found an old "Radiation Warning" sign, dried up insect bodies, and very old insulation, very gross looking insulation.
I was so thankful Sterling let me handle the drill while he dealt with the majority of the insulation and the bugs.
The old wood walls came out pretty easily, but the insulation disintegrated upon exposure and became a thick dust that coated everything. Again, I was so thankful for the goggles and face masks.. and I'm seriously hoping there wasn't anything too harmful in that vintage insulation!
Once the walls were out and we swept up as much dust as we could and started seriously considering the floor plan. We are wanting to do a lot of add-ons.
Dreaming up the floor plan was one of my favorite parts of this weekend after all the hard (and gross) work. We actually spent 2 full days on the wall's demolition!
I wouldn't trade it for anything though! We worked very very hard this weekend, and tomorrow is another "work" day in the studio! I'm getting ready for Making Mandalas! I am getting so excited!! AND I have a fun little gift for all those who have signed up for the class! As soon as I get myself totally cleaned and rested up.. I'll be sending out a welcome email soon.
But first, here's a quick video of our incredible long weekend.
