It’s a busy week for us with our Las Vegas renovation project, we’re in Official Demo Mode and much is changing! The good kind of change…
We decided to hire two handyman helpers that came highly recommended to assist us this week to speed up the demo process. We have high pitched ceilings in three spaces, the dining room, living room, and master bedroom so yesterday our handyman helpers brought their scaffolding and scraped that popcorn ceilings. Today they will be patched and they await priming and painting. Even though we’ve scraped popcorn ourselves, we dreaded the idea of scraping those high ceilings so it was money well spent!
We are moving a few electrical boxes for better lighting placement and spent the morning moving a HVAC duct (I mentioned here how I hated the location of it). Just those 3 feet make a difference and now it won’t be right up next to the new fixture.
We have one more to move and then I’ll share the steps on how we accomplished it, it wasn’t too difficult!
Also the improvements to the fireplace I mentioned last week have begun…. attacking it with a hammer and crowbar is quite therapeutic… we’re saying goodbye to the sheetrock mantel and filling the niche, yes! That brown tile is next….
We debated what kind of flooring upstairs, more carpet, hardwood, vinyl plank ? We decided on carpet for the hallway and in the bedrooms upstairs, it’s more affordable and easier to install quickly. Something light with a subtle geometric print is what I’m thinking of.
This house has three yes three different kinds of carpet inside, all of them are pretty cruddy, stained, torn in places, and none of them match so we will be removing it all and replacing the baseboards too.
