How Messy is She?

Clare is so messy that she dropped the spready tool thingy (I believe that is the technical term) full of drywall mud not once, not twice, but three times from the top of the ladder. OK so I am a mess. I spill things. Not sure this is what one looks for in renovator. And you should have seen me with the fire rated spray foam. That stuff is sticky...and orange! I had gloves on and still managed to get it all over my hands (and Peter's sweatshirt I was wearing).

I would say my greatest skill is in demolition. I like demolition. There isn't too much you can mess up there. Messing things up is the point. Right up my alley. My mother used to think it would embarrass me to have people see my messy room...not so much. There is a picture of me in high school sitting on the floor of my room surrounded by clothes, overturned laundry baskets, papers and books. I look as happy as a clam sitting amongst my mess. But with renovation you have to clean up the mess. You also have to be sure you don't create a new sticky orange foam removal.
