Hopefully gone tomorrow. After waking up at the crack of dawn to meet the contractor (and for those of you who don't live in the upper states that's 7 a.m.) we went from this
To this (which after being inspected thoroughly by both Kitty and Daniel was deemed to be sound)
Obviously we still need to take out the existing wall to finish the construction but it feels like we are on our way. Hopefully this weekend we will have finished all of the initial demo and construction which will leave next weekend free for electrical and drywall. I realized today that we need to know exactly where the oven and hood is going to go before we close the wall so that we can run electrical to it which means the bulk head in the kitchen needs to be dealt with sooner rather than later.
For tonight we are using the space to house a pair of rarely seen members of the Keller house, our Guinea Pigs Sadie and Audrey. Honey sure thinks they are interesting though.
I'll keep you all posted on our wall progress as more gets done. I'm super excited about it still (which is a good sign) so hopefully it will keep moving along at a good pace.
Have a great weekend everyone!
