Uncovering some gems.

As Mike pries off ancient sheetrock and flooring, we’ve uncovered many interesting layers. Oh to have seen the house back in the day when this wallpaper and b/w flooring was lovingly installed…

Sadly, there’s nothing that can be saved so it all goes into the trash heap. But I’m going to start working on my time capsule in the next few days. We have no idea about the people that had this home way back when but I’ll put together a little something; newspaper, photos, our names, etc and stuff it into a waterproof pouch and leave it in the walls and maybe someday it will be discovered. We’ve done that with every one of our projects and it’s exciting to know that someday, 30, 50, 80 years from now it will be discovered.
