Found during demo


Over the years, we have made some interesting discoveries during project demo. Frequently, we unearth old newspapers like this one yesterday from 1940. "4 grapefruit for $.17... lamb chops $.25/ lb" tells a story of the good old days! Have you ever made any great discoveries during a project?

Have a question about this project?

    Like the time capsule ideas! @Dawn P - I've left old newspapers above cabinets, behind the trim, for others to find as well.
