Dry Wall Dust: Friend or Foe?

Well it’s official, our flood was a stage three in terms of the insurance company. What that means is that anything the water touched has to be replaced or destroyed. UGH!

At this point I have talked to at least 5 different claim’s adjusters, three or four cleaning crews, and one contractor – oh and let’s not forget the plumber. Everyone has been very nice, helpful and explained the “process” very well. And our house, studio, gallery and workshop are torn to pieces. And now the real fun begins….

So I choose to be thankful. There is a mess, and later this week EVERYTHING on the first floor and in our lower level goes into a POD for storage during construction. It will probably take 5-6 weeks to complete all the construction and rebuild. So I choose to be thankful. We have a saying in our bedroom that states:

       We tend to seek happiness, when happiness is actually a choice…

So in light of ALL this mess (literally) we are making the choice to be thankful. We are thankful for insurance, thankful for vendors who are good at their jobs, and thankful that our beautiful home and gallery will be all better in several weeks.

Yes, this means we are closed until probably a weekend in May. So stay tuned, we will keep you posted on our progress…and be thankful! We are!!!

  1. Just keep thinking, Ann, someday this will all be just a bitter memory. It is amazing how dirty crystal clean water can become when it runs over and thru things of various textures. Tell me none of your glorious Japanese papers were destroyed…may you survive.

    1. Thanks Peggy, the papers are still safe a lovely AND only a couple frames were water logged in the gallery. And yes, in five to six weeks this will all be over and someone else will have done all the work…dry wall dust is my friend!
