Sunday afternoon we worked on our kitchen remodel project some more. Mr. Wonderful had to remove the "appliance garage" to do some measurements, and SURPRISE, SURPRISE, SurPRIZE, what did he find, but LIVE WIRES coming out a hole in the wall behind the "garage" he had just removed. OOOOO!
Good thing he found them, but even though we've lived in this house several years, today is the IDES OF MARCH - no telling WHAT could have happened! Caesar might not have been the only fatality on this date!
We've found a few interesting things while living here as we've worked together on simple wallpapering projects and other "simple and easy" little things...Once we were removing molding around the bedroom ceiling when we were replacing some drywall that had ruined when the kitchen above flooded from a problem with our dishwasher...and discovered that the molding went THROUGH the wall into the next room. Someone didn't want to be bothered to trim the molding to the correct size, so they just drilled a hole, put a l-o-n-g strip of crown molding through the hole, then puttied it up so it was not detectable. Yep - THAT makes sense!
On a different day on the same drywall project, we found sparking wires in the walls while removing some of the wall connected to the same ceiling....that was a joyous day! Later on, we removed more of the ceiling drywall, only to find a hidden light fixture where we thought there was none - someone had buried it under the ceiling complete with lightbulbs....and then we had to find the hidden light switch! This house holds many secrets! Some day I'm afraid that behind some wall somewhere, we may find the body of the electrician that did all of these deeds!
Have a Fabulous Monday!
