well, sorta…we spent all day tearing out more stuff and creating a huge mess! demo is a bit addicting, it is fun to tear out walls…it’s just the putting back part that i imagine is hard. we won’t be doing that part though
our labor day was spent, well, laboring…a lot. it was the longest and most exhausting workday we’ve had at the house so far, a full day. we got a lot done! we tore out the rest of the wall between the kitchen and dining, mike tore out the railing separating the sunken living and dining (it will be replaced), we tore out the coat closet in the entry which will become a much larger entry area, we tore out the wall between the kitchen and what will be my office to create a pass thru, and we tore out the strangely deep storage closet in the kitchen and thought of a better use for that space. last but definitely not least, we rented this vibrating hammer thing (i’m so technical!) to tear out the kitchen and bathroom tile. wow, was that a lot of work!! and backbreaking. and very, very messy. but we’re done! now we need to do cleanup and trash haul off and there is an end in sight for the demo process.
now we just need to find some money to put it back together again!
