This is spooky...

To get you in the mood for Halloween, I thought I'd take you on a haunted tour of the latest project happening around here. Be warned...this isn't for the faint of heart.

If you think you can back out now or that any of these light switches actually work you are sorely mistaken.

Watch your step. The floor may or may not be underneath you.

Secrets of the past are harbored inside these walls.

Plaster tiled walls will not let go of their memories without a fight.

Did you think you were going to be able to take a bath here tonight? (insert evil laugh and spine-tingling music.)

Now, now, don't be afraid. It's just our first floor bath being remodeled or as 4-year-old Nora more accurately describes, "destroyed." Lucky for us, we still have a bath and a half intact to help us through these harrowing times. However, I will admit that the past few days have had me on the edge of my seat. The banging/sound of walls crumbling along with a fine mist of circulating dust is happening on the other side of my studio walls. All who have lived through remodeling of any kind know that these are not fun times. It will be good in the end though. And I promise to share photos when the light shines again in our brand new bathroom.

Aaawww! Been there. I love old houses, but the inevitable bathroom remodel is enough to give one pause.

Clever pictures!
