The 2U field crew started another large scale salvage job on Mercer Island yesterday – We’re stripping out multiple bathrooms, doors, fixtures and a set of birds-eye maple kitchen cabinets.

Here’s some action shots from day 1:

Cast-iron tubs on the top floor are the bane of my existence, it’s almost never worth the time, trouble and shocking low-back pain.

But sometimes, still – even at my advanced age… I can’t help it:

…I’ll never enjoy a hot soak in this beast, but maybe you will..?

Back next week to help get it down 3 flights of stairs. Ugh.

On Monday we’re going to strip-out materials from an Italian restaurant that’s served it’s last picatta – a nice load of stainless kitchen fixtures, dining chairs, lights, etc…. maybe even the menus.
