Wayne updated me with numerous demolition pictures throughout the day so when I finally arrived back home last night around 9:30 pm--the shock was numbed a bit. Good bye ugly tile. The space looked so large and it was cleaned up nicely. The boys built barricades to keep the work dust in the work space. It makes the renovation so much easier to handle.
Today, the boys started installing the hardwood floor. I thought for sure I would need to move my home office upstairs to the library but the sound of the nail guns started to go from loud to rhythmical. The floor came out wonderful and it was quite painless on my end. Again-thankful, so thankful for the multiple barricades.
Wayne believes we need to eat out for supper instead of me trying to be creative in the temporary kitchen. Well, I do not feel like hand washing pans and living off paper plates so I am going to enjoy going out to eat for a few dinners! No cooking and no cleaning up....I am suffering so! HAHAHA!
Tomorrow there is rumors of cabinets being installed, electrician coming to do some work and a double oven unit to be picked up that has arrived! It sounds like a wonderful day! Crossing fingers and toes.......
Coffee wasn’t as much of a struggle today. I think I am adapting. Microwavable lunch and taking my own advice for dinner – took the bride out to Newicks. Now I’ve heard some people say that they get tired of going out to eat so much, and though Wendy was willing to cook, I thought we ought to see if going out ‘too much’ will become a burden. I can see how financially it might.
I know we are only two days into this project, but as for the construction timeline goes, we are right on track. The hardwood floor was installed today and I was even able to accomplish a few items on the honey-do list. Cabinets are being delivered first thing in the morning – I’m excited for that!
