In unrelated news:
starting the stripping.
June 16, 2004 -
HayPatch, UT - What was thought to be lost in the
archives of HayPatch.com is now unearthed!
The Great Office Update of 2003!
What started out innocently enough -- just
remove the wallpaper and paint it all white, turned into
what some might describe a slow burning trip to Hades.
Andrea was asked to strip the wallpaper
and help paint. It sounded like the wallpaper may take a
day or so to strip. Well, 4+ layers (That's
on the wall alone, with 2+ layers on the ceiling. By the
way, who thought that wallpapering a ceiling was a good
idea?!) combined with 100°+
temperatures and a dripping hot steamer and you've got a
prescription for a loooong week's worth of work.
Suffice it to say that they survived the 100°
temperatures and 150% steaming humidity, but as
you'll see below, mental breakdowns were common by the
time the paint started rolling.
