Wednesday was Demolition Day for his new home at 531 3rd St. in Ronald, Washington!
What was under the old linoleum floors and the crappy carpeting? SOLID PINE FLOORS!
What was under the ’60s-style cheapo paneling? DRYWALL. What was under the Drywall? SOLID KNOTTY-PINE (PROBABLY TONGUE-IN-GROOVE)!
What was under the aluminum siding and Tyvek sheeting? Thin, cement-type siding shingles. What was under those? Solid pine siding, most of it in good condition!
It turns out the the house next door was an identical twin to theirs, and it’s still in original condition. So, they can see exactly what needs to be done!
They met the neighbors, and everyone seems very nice. They downed a few beers while watching the hockey game at the local bar, meeting most of the town!
Here are two views from their “commute” to Seattle through Snoqualmie Pass:
In short: They are ecstatic!
