New job... check. Baby furniture... check.

New House...CHECK!

The owner of the house that we were interested in finally gave us a call back. He was on vacation in Montana for 10 days. We let him know that we were interested, and we started negotiating price right over the phone. We verbally agreed on a price. So yesterday we drove down to Bowling Green and met with our lender. He looked over the contract with us and said it all looked good. Then we met the owner at the house and we signed the contract! So in 30 days, the house will be ours! We're so excited. The house is wonderful.

There is a TON of hideous wallpaper in this house and it all must come down. Who's idea was it to put up wallpaper like this?!

Dining Room


Spare bathroom


Kitchen (dining room through the door)

I mean, this stuff is hideous. I guess I have a lot of work to do once we can start moving stuff in. Anybody ever had to remove this much wallpaper before? How hard is it? How long will it take?

Good luck with all that - taking down wallpaper is an adventure the likes of which few men have returned from without the Thousand Yard Stare. Seriously, it sucks.

All right! I can't wait to get started!

We'll get that wallpaper off, even if we have to knaw it at it with our teeth!

I just hope for your sake that the previous owner PRIMED the wall before putting the wallpaper up. If not, you really have a nightmare. If it was primed, it shouldn't be that hard.
