My middle name is MESS

That's what my mom always told me anyway. Today I took a hammer and just started pounding away. I got really burned up yesterday attending of couple festivals so it was a little painful, but I managed somehow! Once I started hitting and making holes here and there I found fiberglass insulation between the aluminum and the paneling. It was getting everywhere! It was so hot in there .. at least 100 degrees! The sweat was pouring off of me and getting in my eyes and it just wasn't pleasant. Husband says he can't help me because of his sinus issues, so whatever... As long as he gets some good tunes on my iPod to blast, I think I can handle it. My mom and dad will help me when I need it.

I priced some materials today! I am so excited! Check it:

HUGE (4x12?) Sheets of Paneling - $14 a piece! 1 and half pieces should be enough to do the whole thing. We found this nice beige paneling that would brighten the place up and maybe not retain so much heat. ?

Base Cabinet for between the beds - about $80. Not bad - going to see what Ikea has first.

Sticky Vinyl Flooring Tiles - like $20 a box (1 should be enough!)

Hopefully I will have the rest of the insides taken down in the next 3 or 4 days. Then we can start putting in new insides! :D :D :D
