Plus I tore out a ton of lath board plaster, so now everything has a layer of dust that looks 20 years old. Plus there is some kind of black moldy dust in the walls that stained my tub black - BLEACH isn't taking it off! Non-diluted bleach!
I just keep waiting to find a dead animal in the walls - I already found a dead mouse when I was redoing the basement.
Just starting to wear me out - I finally finished the basement, now all I want is an office with a wood burner and no dust, or plaster, or dirt, or bricks...
I hear you on that. My wife quite regularly berates me for all the piles. Until I point out that SHE wanted me to start the project. We moved in 6 months ago and there is no end in sight. Waiting til next spring to start the big projects (porch, balcony, garage renovation). It's gonna be a long, long winter up here.
