House update #...something

There has been discussion of new house names, ala "A-house" and "A-partment", but I'm advocating for "Fort Pigeon" (Avian Bird Flu death house), after being rained down upon from the sky by decades of pigeon crap and dust as I smashed the shit out of existing ceiling today with a crowbar and mallet

Matt's room is done, 2 new housemates enter the pigeon-dome, and now the re-drywalling of the entire upstairs is underway (well the part at the top of the staircase). We've been summoned (or some legal type term) to court for being a blight on the neighbourhood, and the feral cats have been making beautiful music in the backyard, while the male pigeon dances for the female one outside my window, it must be spring...

Matt's room before and after (Matt and I first slept here in opposite corners on the floor away from the hole in the ceiling where the pigeons would crap through, and dealt with the mosquito infestation, but first we had to empty the room out)




Upstairs hallway area before and, er, during?





more to come, sooner rather than later. And of course tonight is one of the five nights of the year it has to rain in L.A...
