So I decided I needed to be closer then 40 miles away from work. (Thats one way)
I found a trailer for rent real close to work for less then $100 a month. Its been vacant for some time and crackheads had stripped a lot of the wiring out of it. Im completely gutting the inside and starting fresh.
What follows are the pictures of the work over the past two weeks. I spend two hours there after work most days and just keep plugging along.
The first six pictures are of the state of the trailer before starting work.
The rest are of the demo.
First to go were the kitchen cabinets. The cabinets under the sink were made out of 2x4s and plywood. Im moving the kitchen against the 12' wide end wall of the trailer to make better use of the small space. That and in this part of the trailer there are three layers of plywood on the floor. :?
After that I just kept going along ripping down the sheetrock off the walls. Off the living room there was a small 8 x 8 room that had no use to me. One of the walls backed up to the bathtub and this wall was rotten away at the bottom. So I gutted that room and the bathroom. Also in the bathroom the floor under the sink vanity and toilet is totally rotten away. The toilet is half way through the floor.
Im adding about 6' to the bedroom in the back, the bathroom will be bigger and I am creating a actual laundry room. The trailer did have forced air heat but judging by the condition of the floor around the furnace I am betting the insides are shot.
