I mentioned on Facebook the other day that I am in the middle of a remodel project and I am currently gutting the main stairs, entrance, and upstairs landing & hallway. Now I live in an old house and we have squirrels travelling in the walls all the time - especially the winter.
So it is not unusual to find walnuts and the occasional corpse in the wall when tearing them out. Well many a year ago a false ceiling was put in over the main stairs and it became the main hangout for our furry friends, so I totally expected to find the above. I got two bodies and about 500 nuts (sounds like the beginnings of a good joke yeah?).
What I didn't expect was to wake up the next morning and find this dumped on the pile of rubble.
I guess the little Scarfaces noticed I was doing a good clean up and dumped the body during the night so I could get rid of it for them. I feel like I am in Goodfellas helping to hide the evidence.
Here is some more work in progress shots. This is the drop ceiling:
This is the break in the plaster underneath the drop ceiling where the squirrels were getting in.
