Call Me Captain Destructo

      @Cyndi Aww, thank you. :) I think ours will be an intensive project too but hey, it's what we enjoy doing! It sure is frustrating/satisfying work.

    Good luck to you! I'm sure it will be awesome but PUT YOUR SHOES ON before you get a splinter!!! Sorry, the old auntie in me pops out every now and then.

      @Veronica Wheeler I was spackling drywall in the last picture...not sure where a splinter would even come from...
