(Un)Nailed It!!! ...

I announced a build-up in excitement yesterday, I didn't say it would be bam, bam, bam!!! So, it wasn't exactly exciting today, but greatness is usually preceded by a lot of boring chores, like pulling hundreds of nails. Early on we had wanted to keep the original lath and plaster, but we quickly realized that it would be much more work, time, and money to do so than simply ripping it out and replacing it with modern wall covering (aside from that, the plaster had to come off anyway so we could install electrical and insulation). Ripping out the lath and plaster, however, left lots of little nails in the walls and ceiling.
