This is the fun part!
Bashing in plaster with hammers, prying off pink tile, pulling lath, removing floor tile, asbestos and all, (we hired professionals for that!).
Dust, dust, dust.
Also drilling the first holes for the radiant heating system and replacing old wiring.

Planning for a radiant heating system
The first couple of pictures show our new friend and future housemate helping out with drilling holes in the joists below the main part of the house. We will run plastic tubing (PEX) through the holes. Once a manifold is installed there will be warm water running through these tubes. This water heats the surfaces of each floor, which will provide heat to both our home and the apartment. Cool, huh!

OOPS! But he did it! Here are the new wires
