Knowing I was going to be tearing insulation out of the wall, I decided to come prepared
id: 31787
Yikes, this house is certainly in need of help
id: 31788
Dagger was excited to have us there
id: 31789
The uh.. stairs
id: 31790
Nice ceiling
id: 31791
It actually got much much worse than this as we pushed insulation down from upstairs, but I wouldn't take my camera out at that point
id: 31792
We had to work upstairs first because there was no lighting up there, so we work with the sun!
id: 31793
Pile of debris
id: 31794
id: 31795
You don't want to be breathing this stuff..
id: 31796
We think it's mostly shredded newspaper, but maybe with some fiberglass too
id: 31797
Dagger hard at work
id: 31798
Reibello joined us! It was fun to work with him outside of Minecraft
id: 31799
Swing that hammer!

Removing the larger pieces of debris
id: 31801
We had to get the sticks out before we could shovel the insulation. Otherwise it made a kind of composite polymer that was impossible to break up
id: 31802
Take that, slats!
id: 31803
Ben tears through the wall with an axe.. but with good reason!
id: 31804
Ripping off slats by hand
id: 31805
Ben looks upstairs
id: 31806
As you can tell by Reibello's breath here, it was pretty cold inside
id: 31807
The view from the foyer, which was pretty much intact
id: 31808
Nerds at work
id: 31809
Topaz had to keep the mask under his nose or his glasses fogged up
id: 31810
Ben continues to work on his wall
id: 31811
I thought this respirator would be ridiculous overkill, but I'm glad I brought it!
id: 31812
Deciding what to work on next..
id: 31813
Munchkins! Eat them before they all get coated in insulation!
id: 31814
The only heat source in the house, a crazy kerosene.. jet.. engine.. thing. It belched fire at random times
id: 31815
Topaz is ready to rock
id: 31816
Look at the breath!
id: 31817
We filled well over a dozen of those giant garbage bags
id: 31818
Even dagger eventually put on a mask
id: 31819
Ben carefully navigates the second floor
id: 31820
Rachie works on removing some insulation
id: 31821
Walking around up here was pretty scary. You had to check your footing with every step
id: 31822
I wouldn't advise walking near the hole
id: 31823
Various debris removed from upstairs
id: 31824
Hard at work removing the crusty old insulation
id: 31825
All these giant piles of it were eventually pushed down through the hole, making a giant mess
id: 31826
The hatchet worked really well here
id: 31827
Rachie continues dismantling the wall
id: 31828
Dagger collected the larger pieces
id: 31829
Rachie's glove slipped off, and her hammer along with it! Poor Dagger got a faceful of hammer, but got off pretty light
id: 31830
I decided the respirator wasn't enough and got some safety goggles as well
id: 31831
Reibello looks over the menu for a well deserved post-cleanup meal
id: 31832
I caught Chris off guard
id: 31833
Topaz got some of that Scotch Ale he loves so much. He was bummed I wasn't a fan
id: 31834
Closeup of the bubbles
id: 31835
Waiting for our food to arrive
id: 31836
The wide angle adapater catches Topaz's stupid face
id: 31837
Dagger's feeling better with some progress made on the house and a bandaid on her head
id: 31838
The adapter is also useful for artsy pictures like this!
