She Keeps Going And Going And Going

Not me, Mom!

The spare bedroom. As you can see, there was a leak in the roof. This is the ancient wallpaper that was underneath the paneling.

Under the SIX layers of ancient paneling, was the horse hair plaster. Under the horse hair plaster was blown in insulation. Lots of it. Now you see it.

Now you don't.

The 2 x 6 by the stain mark needs to be replaced. It is rotted.

After it is re-insulated and re-sheet rocked, mom will put the paneling back up.

And paint the room.

Mom is not going to panel the eave. She is going to paint that white, like the ceiling. It will make the room look bigger.

Where can I hide?

I think there are rules that say it has to be sheetrock, then paneling. Your Mom should check.

I'd give you smootchies, but you're a dog and I'm not. (g)

Wow Roxy! I can't believe your mom does all that constructionish work. My mom gets Dad to do it because she doesn't know how. Kudos to your talented mom!

Your mom is very talented. If you need her on the couch one day, just pluck out her batteries!

Oh gosh, our beans went through this in our laundry room. Your mom is brave because that is a lot of work and is very messy work. We know, we tried to help out our beans.
