Another mistake! My God how many holes does it take to hit the drain? One, two, three, four, FIVE! Who needs five holes? This explains the nest of wolf spiders.
And just to freak ya'll out a little, this is what was under the vanity. Ten of the buggers. One with a huge eggsac. Scared the living hell out of me. Most of them didnt give us too much problem, they were trying to get out, diving for the holes in the floor. The female carrying the eggsac was aggressive though. She kept jumping at us, threatening us and trying to intimidate us. Hated to kill a single mom, but i think God forgave us for this one. (full body shudder)

And just for fun, here is a couple pictures of the master bedroom, full of trash bags waiting to be taken to the dump. Insulation, drywall, tile, linoleum, etc.

Question: In the bathroom, my mom insists we need to use wonderboard behind the shower area to protect against moisture. However, with this being a mobile home, im just going to put up an acrylic surround. Im not going with tile, and i was told that you only need the wonderboard if you are using tile, to waterproof it. Do we need the wonderboard, or will the mold-proof drywall work just fine?

i also wanted to post the pictures of the first two cabinets on here, now that im done being scolded on the first thread i posted them on. These are made of 3/4" plywood, 2x4 bases, and whitewood pine face frames. Future cabinets will be made with poplar face frames. These are the sink base and the vanity base for the bathroom. I know i will get scolded for the drawer handle on the door of the vanity, but that was just to see what it would look like. The handle wont be used, ive got another one to use and this one is gonna be used in the kitchen.
Also, the door on the first one looks like its misaligned at the bottom but its not, there is printing on the bottom edge of the left side, and it makes it look like part is missing. Itll look fine once its painted.

I'm just enjoying seeing your progress.

I would like to know where you live where you have spiders like that?

I live in rural texas. they are everywhere in the woods, but they usually dont come into houses unless there is a clear and safe way out. I think the five holes in the floor was safe and clear enough. Usually you find them hanging from trees and living in woodpiles and burnpiles but occasionally they do come in, especially during the winter.

before i forget, we also tested the drains yesterday. I watched under the trailer and my mom poured a gallon of water into the five different drains (kitchen sink, washer, bathroom sink, toilet, and shower) and i made sure all of the water came out of the same pipe and there were no leaks or drips or anything. Yay! That saves me some money and saves me from having to climb under the trailer with the spiders. Yay yay yay do the happy dance... LOL

Just to let everyone know where we stand at this current moment -
We have demoed the entire place, rewired one room, and finished the walls in one room. We have all of the wire we need, still need a bit of insulation, and the only thing we need for the bathroom besides drywall is the sink, countertop, and shower surround. We have to replace all of the water supply lines. Still going to spend somewhere in the range of about $2500.

At this current moment, we have spent a total of $6,737.95

We have returned and sold a total of $1,035.93

Minus the cost of the home itself, we have actually spent on renovations, a grand total of $2,652.02

Add the cost of the dump on Saturday, it brings up our total to $2,692.02

P.S. Did everyone notice the ultra-fancy trashbag curtains? LOL i cant bring myself to put twenty-dollar curtains out there where they will get covered in drywall dust and sawdust.

Looks like we wont be working on the house for a few days yet... Winter storms finally rolled in and its been sleeting and icing over for the last two days. There is no way to work out there with no heat, its just way too cold. Hopefully (this is Texas after all) the storms will roll out by the weekend and we can get some more work done.

Hopefully you didn't leave any water in the traps or they will freeze and bust.
