so why didnt I listen to her.(when you have a 65 y/o house, you dont look into places you really dont want to see)
I ripped open the attic wall and discovered the previous owner vented a dryer into the attic, noticed a piece of dryer hose left in there, and also unpatched hole left on the inside for the hose.
I never should have opened this up.
I could have spent the winter cleaning out the shop, making pens, maybe go visit my sisters and brother in florida, maybe head off for a few days of anything but this.
I have to go start cleaning it out, vacuuming out all the dust,clean up the old insulation, add some insulation, and then seal it up from the cold while my wife decides if she wants drawers or cabinets.
I still have to plaster and paint. I hate this stuff. (at least Ill get to build some cabinets eventually)
did I mention I really hate this type of stuff?
(funny though, I shoved a box of clay birds back there in the dark from the other side 25 years ago, never knew where I put them)
