This week we created the biggest mess of our young lives and went through lots and lots of plastic sheeting. Prepping the room to take out the popcorn ceilings felt like we were making a field operatory or just a scene out of Dexter. Removing the popcorn ceilings wasn't very difficult, but it took a lot of water to loosen it. With the soffits our and the popcorn ceilings removed the room felt instantly less oppressive and dark. There was so much more light in the room and coming from the long tunnel of work still ahead.
