The Pit of Despair

My wife and I decided to clean one of the rooms in our house.  On moving one of the bookcases, we found mold.  Lots of it.  We called in an expert who specialized in disaster recovery.  He stated they were extremely behind and that I could tackle the project.

I removed some of the buckled sheetrock, only to find there was no insulation in the outside walls.

So, I had to strip the outside walls out :

I sanded the floors :

I resurfaced the floors :

I added a moisture barrier :

I then added insulation :

Then I re-installed sheet rock :

Time to tape and start mudding :

I may have gotten a little dusty.  Masks are good when sanding and mudding.  I finally got around to painting :

It was time to re-do the floors (again), because of paint and other problems.  With the gap at the edges from the floor to the sheetrock, I had to use a tall base board along with the standard smaller base board.  It turned out okay :

The room is complete, and I'm excited to get things back in so we can have our living room back.
