B flew in on a Tuesday and I took a couple days off work and we headed up there on Thursday morning for a three day weekend.
When we arrived we set up camp in the master bedroom. We spent the first afternoon just sweeping and shop-vacking the campsite.
The next morning we got down to work. We went into town and rented a Hilti Demo-Hammer to put the hurt on those crazy stubborn kitchen floor tiles. You might recall that I spent a long day upstate back in November during which I wrecked my back hammering at the old kitchen tiles. Happily, where my mini-sledge hammer and big chisel had been slow and painful, the Demo-Hammer was fun and relatively low-impact on our backs and finished the job in time to return it and grab the half-day rate.
I'm not saying I want to buy my own little jack-hammer, but it really was pretty fun to use - although the earplugs and respirator were essential. The job was done in under 4 hours.
