Our contractor called us today with a nice surprise. He started demo YESTERDAY! He knew how anxious I’ve been to get started and also knew I’d want to come take a look as soon as it started getting torn up, but he waited a day so I could actually see some significant work. The entire first floor is gutted. The walls are down. The old bathroom is gone. The ceiling has been opened up. Studs, studs, everywhere are studs. We stopped by last night after work. Unfortunately it was already dark out, and there is currently no electric in the house, so we could see very little & were not able to take any photos. The new, giant dumpster in front of our house (which made us cheer as we approached from down the street) is already filled to the brim. I came in to work early today in hopes that I can get out before sunset and snap a few shots. I’ll keep ya posted!
