I’ve never been able to honestly use the phrase “Blood, Sweat and Tears” to describe something I have been through until we started our trailer renovation, and then BAM all three in one day! Once we started digging into our future “loveshack” we realized there was a lot more work than we had bargained for. The floor was completely rotted through, the insulation was paper thin and the ceiling in the kitchen was sagging – along with our hearts.
We had never done anything like this before. My husband is a carpet cleaner and I’m the office girl. Sure I’ve hung pictures and painted the walls in my house and we even put in hardwood floors, but this was HUGE.
So, we put on our tool belts, our masks and gloves and got to work. It was actually very satisfying to rip out this old dirty stuff. It’s just that the light at the end of the tunnel was still fuzzy – for James, my husband. I knew from the moment I saw this little crap shack exactly what it was going to look like and how it would be decorated. I hadn’t slept in weeks, planning it in my head. I have to admit I was a little overwhelmed as more and more roadblocks seemed to pop up, but nothing was stopping us now.
So we were down to the studs and the siding. Now what?
We would sit and have a beer.
And we would figure it out.
