Day Fifteen, Sixteen

| | Comments (0)

I could not find any brick to replace the first floor wall (I will have to keep looking) so I decided to start on the second floor wall. It is very similar to the first floor except that I only need to do about half of it.

I started Stage one of removing the plaster. It took me about 5 hours. It was not so bad mostly because a large section of it had already been removed. Also it seemed to come off in bigger chunks. I don't know why.

After that, on Sunday, I started Stage two, removing the morter and grout. I have completed about 1/4 of the wall, so it is coming. My arms feel like jelly after 3 long days pounding brick. It was a good thing for the long 4th of July weekend because I got a lot of work done, but on the other hand, I am really tired and sore for this coming week. Oh well.
