Here's a recap — Saturday:
|I went over to Carolina Tile to finalize our kitchen choices with Brandy —above is the result.|
|After he and Alan were done with the can lights, my Dad finished up the work he'd |
started last weekend – framing in the wine bar. This is off of our kitchen leading into the den,
and it will have a laundry room behind it.
|And he'd knocked out a wall to make our back entrance larger —|
plus giving us a needed 'mudroom' area to drop stuff when we come in the house.
Tons of progress, thanks to the team:
|Mike got the remainder of the bad linoleum out of the kitchen pantry. Again the shovel did the trick.|
|We got all the old junk out of the attic and swept it clean...|
|This was done by dropping all the trash through the exposed new tray ceiling down onto the living room floor. Of course then all that had to be carried out to the dumpster...|
|...Leaving an even more disgusting carpet which brought on the biggest change of the weekend—|
saying farewell to the green shag carpet!
|Chris and William ripped it up, rolled it, and took it to the trash where it should feel more at home.|
|Unfortunately in its aftermath were a million more nails and tacks that had to be pulled out by|
hand and then swept up afterwards. It took the rest of us the rest of the afternoon...
|Here's the after!|
|Above is the doorway before (from the other side)...|
|...and the after! This makes the whole space feel much more open.|
