And the Walls Come Tumbling Down...

Hello lovlies.
We've been working on the house like crazy, yesterday we spent ten hours working on projects. At one point my dad was working on a crack in the wall of the living room. The plaster had split and my dad was trying to figure out how to stick it back to the wall.
As I stood watching my dad & Jus work the wall went from having a cracked wall to having a big hole

To having a plasterless wall.

Restoring this house is definitely a lesson in deep breathing, trying not to cry, and learning a lot of things you weren't sure you'd ever know.

(Don't worry, we're in the process of covering the hole with drywall.)
