Walls gone

Walls are down -
plumbing and electrical
is being roughed in.

The above picture shows you
just how small the
kitchen was.

It is still going to be small but
after walking in the house
and seeing it all open
the design of the kitchen changed.

I'm excited that it will not be closed in
and we worked with the
cabinet man to
come up with a new 
kitchen design that will allow the
kitchen to stay open.

 Soon to be dining room and
laundry room.
The temporary wall is in the doorway of 
the new family room.

Another one of the dining and laundry room
from a different angle.
Looking out into the garage.

Taking the old bathtub out of 
the master bathroom.

Another shot of the kitchen.
The guest bathroom is in the background.

 Things have changed since these pictures were 

I'll save them for another post -

Hopefully, Friday.

Until then -

Moving along

Well, I didn't get over to do a post
this weekend -

that doesn't mean I wasn't here.

Dan and I worked on getting the old laminate
flooring out of the kitchen and both 

Dan uses a roofing shovel to get the corner up
and then I pull up the flooring.

To say that I am sore would be
I have used muscles I didn't even
know I had -
and we still have the rest of the house
to do -
both bedrooms,
living room, dining room,
laundry room, office,
 and two hallways!

Oh my!!!!

We have decided that we will work about an hour
every afternoon after the guys leave
and we hope to be able to get
 it all done in a week.

We shall see.

I realized that I haven't posted 
many pictures so - 
I'll show you some of the 
guys setting the
on the family room and
These are from a couple of 
weeks ago -
we are a lot further
along now.

Dan helping out - getting the
trusses attached
to the fork lift.

So much has changed since these photos, 
but I'll save them
for a later

Maybe (???) tomorrow.

Moving along

Well, it's been seventeen days since I
last posted.

How can that be possible????

Well, part of the reason is we have moved out of the house
due to the remodeling process -

I mean, when you have no walls, no kitchen, 
and no bathroom it's a little hard
to live in the house.

The issue is - the house is the only place
I have internet -

so, unless I come over and have some
extra time -
no post.

This post will be short and sweet -

The walls are down -
the family room is "dryed"  in -
installing the fireplace today.

The electrician has been here the last couple of
days doing his rough in.

The plumber has done his rough in
except he has to come
back and install my shower.

Things are moving along -

I'll try and get over on the
weekend and
do a longer post with pictures -

but for now - I gotta run.

Hope you are having a great 
St. Patrick's Day!

Talk to you soon!!!!

Rainy, Dreary Days

Well, I don't know what the weather has been like where you live but here it has been warm, overcast, and rainy.  We are having temperat...
