The Spoils of Demo

Hubby and I and Jamie spent another whole day doing demo.   What a job!  Of course, we started by saying we'd just take off the wall coverings and leave the lathes and the molding around the windows.  As we went we realized that if we're going to do it we might as well get down to the studs. So here are my lovely walls right now:

The sink and the wall right behind it are the only things left.  We wanted to keep our running water for as long as possible!

We found a couple of interesting things.   Of course we knew about this plug:

Hubby will be moving that one so it's below the windows, not between them!

But this plug was a surprise:

That is an old-fashioned ironing board cupboard.  
And of course you need an outlet to plug the iron into, right?

I waited the whole time to find the fantastic item hidden behind the walls.   Maybe a strong box with savings bonds, or gold coins.  Or at least an envelope with a few hundred dollars in it. 

Instead we got coupons

Someone's library card

A baseball card that was chewed on by a mouse

But we found the best things down in the heating duct.
  A couple army men, a train conductor, a small hat and a very big hat.

And a marble and a big Lego.

Not the best compensation for my poor, aching back!
