DAY 1 - Was a complete demolition day. There were so many people working, and they did such a great job and go so much done in one day!!! Everything came out of the kitchen, and I mean everything. It was just a big open space by the end of the day.
The Sun room also got redone, with all the windows being taken out and new framing. And I could already tell it was warmer. So nice!!
And last but not least, on Day 1 the front room fireplace was taken apart. And then they even had the new gas fireplace insert to put in it's place, so we could get an idea of what it is going to look like. Talk about a great first day ;)
DAY 2 - And this was the day when the noise really got crazy. Taking tile out is a very loud, and very mess job.
DAY 3 - The tile workers moved to the Dining room and Hallways. And again, another loud day, but just wow, what a change with the tile gone.
And while the tile was being taken out of the dining room, the sun room was getting instillation and HVAC was installing a gas line for the fireplace and moving some air returns. Much easier with access to the floor boards ;)
DAY 4 - Was electrical. These guys were amazing. They arrived at 7:30 and worked until 7:30 that night doing so much electrical. All of the lights had to be moved, new outlets, new lines for additional lighting, and a redo of the electrical panel in order to support it all. They were just so great!!! And they got everything done so that . . .
DAY 5 - Could start off with a passed electrical inspection. Yippee!!! Which meant the Dry Waller's could come that afternoon. The sun room was framed with the electricians day, and by the end of yesterday I could actually see my new pantry. How fun is that!!!
So that is Week 1!!! So productive and so very exciting ;) But I will admit, I am enjoying the peace and quiet today. It's so all going to be worth it when it's all done though, and the temporary kitchen is working out great. So I think we are all going to manage just fine ;) Be back next weekend with another report. I can't wait to see what all is done!!!
