The enormous lump in my stomach this afternoon is complements of the front entry.

After being gone all day, I arrived home to see two workers scraping 100 years of wallpaper off the walls in the front entry.  What I thought was going to be a simple prime-with-paint and skim-coat/texture with plaster is now remove-the-wallpaper (and whatever old plaster comes with it).  I don't believe this was within the scope of the bid so am seriously concerned about what this will cost.  Now that they are well into the job, there is no turning back.  

Plumbers were here to hang more baseboard heaters in areas where the mud guys aren't.  They will be back on Thursday for homeowner boiler training and I suspect they will hang the remainder of the heaters.

Just when I thought it couldn't get any more dusty, I found out I was wrong.  Dust level is now serious.
