I’m continuing the series started here where I sketch the taking down and putting back up of a part of our home.
Out goes the old linoleum floor, it’s amazing it survived 44 years in the kitchen. Then the floor is leveled and left (to cure?) overnight…
And in goes the tile the next day.
Cutting out holes for skylights, and putting in the recessed light. This room has always been super-dark, only catching the rays of the setting sun. I’m hoping the skylights mean I can work in this room now- in natural light.
I didn’t get to sketch the removing of the old popcorn ceiling, also known as cottage cheese ceiling, which describes it’s look exactly. That’s because these old ceiling contain asbestos so I stayed away. But I did a quick sketch of the newly-unpopcorned ceiling being patched and textured again. And yes, those colors in the background aren’t made up: I have red, mango, and bright blue walls all over the house.
More in the destruction/construction series coming soon.
