Phase 2 Begins, Reconstruction


The Hole on the Wall is Filled
October 28, 2018
The remodeling project continues. We have completed most of the demolition. While there are still a few things to accomplish, we have moved into the reconstruction phase.

Even though it was raining today, Chris and I removed all of the carpet from the main room and the bedroom. We took it to the landfill and spent the rest of the day beginning the reconstruction phase of the project. 

Floors to the Concrete
October 28, 2018
The floors are now down to the bare concrete. The hole in the wall that was at the end of the now removed counter has dry wall installed and the initial coat of joint compound is in place. 

It has been a lot of work. There is still so much to do, but at least the demolition is complete and we are onto painting and floor installation. The flooring will be delivered next week. 

Painting begins, probably later today and floor installation begins next Saturday. The flooring will be delivered Tuesday, I wonder where I am going to store 43 cases of flooring? The project totals about 827 square feet of floor. Hopefully most of the painting will be completed by the time the floor installation begins. It is possible that the laundry room and back bedroom may not be painted before the flooring is installed.

The hardest part about the project is deciding where to store stuff. All of the closets are empty and this has turned into an entire house project. Empty bedrooms are being pressed into service as temporary storage rooms.

In two weeks, the project should be complete! I look forward to the house returning to normal.
