Mmmm I smell Downy fresh :) One of the contractor guys told me that fabric softener and water will remove wallpaper. I tried it. It worked so well. I didn’t even have to scrape. It just peeled right off. If you ever have to remove wallpaper, try it!
Good news about my loan. My loan officer said that all the funds will be given to me at closing and I’ll be able to have full control of my money. This means I’ll be able to pay my contractors as soon as their jobs are finished. They won’t have to wait 2 to 3 days for the bank to transfer the funds into my account. I get all the money up-front. On closing day, the full amount will be transferred into my account. This really simplifies things for me, and for my contractors.
Well, I’ve pretty much done all I can do myself. I removed the wallpaper today. All the demo is done. Everything is pretty much gutted. All that’s left is to re-build. Put up the new ceilings. A few new walls. New floors. I’ve done all I can do myself. Now it’s time for the professionals to step in and re-construct my house.
My loan officer said that it should be just a few more days until I close on the loan. Hopefully by next week I’ll have the money! Fingers crossed ;)
Once I get the money… the re-building should move along real quick. I’m getting real excited! :)
Keep you posted!
