Just call me Barney.

Rubble, that is. Mommy, I recommend a deep breath, and maybe a stiff drink, before scrolling through the pictures.

Yikes! I'm trying to remain calm. It's only a basement. But HOLY CRAP!

A view looking towards the stairs

Mid-demo looking into the laundry room. The heater is leaving today

Also mid demo. Breathe deeply. This is what happens when you don't realize they are coming on Wednesday and they ring your doorbell at 6:58 am.

Straight ahead is where the bed used to be

Oh my G-d.

That's where the ugly built in was.

The ceiling

Can you see the shed behind the rubble? That, my dears, is rubble. R U B B L E.

Another angle of said rubble.

More garbage.

Oh and happy happy joy joy, I have asbestos around my two water pipes. I know, I know-asbestos is BAD. Asbestos = cancer. Someone is coming today to look at it. We will abate it or whatever you do to asbestos wrapped pipes. And the guys seem to have broken my alarm box in the basement. My keypad upstairs is dead and there doesn't seem to be any power. I'm remaining calm. But I fear a large fight with the handyman over that. Yikes.

OMG - I'm so sorry you're going through this.
Can you save any of the wood for a new side business making Sukkahs for people - you know, to pay for the remodel? :)

That's all I can say.

It's totally unrecognizable!
