Week one of demo is down at the house! HERE are some photos of the progress. I feel like this is happening quicker than I thought! The good news is the house is a lot better than we expected once all of the walls and floors were removed. I was expecting a ton of wood rot since it’s been sitting so long! We did find some active termites, but that wall can just be removed to eliminate them. Then we’ll treat the ground!
Now that we’re not adding on to the house, I’ve had more trouble thinking through the rooms. When we bought the house, it was with the intention of building an addition. My mental block had me pretty discouraged. Our contractor, Al, is amazing and has been coming up with tons of ideas. I vetoed all of them except one. We FINALLY know what the layout will be which is SO exciting! He had the idea of extending the second floor on the front of the house since the foundation is already there, which got my creative juices flowing! We’ll flip flop the master bedroom and bathroom so that we can create a bigger space there as well! Downstairs, we’re knocking down a wall that separated the kitchen and dining room and creating one huge kitchen! Then, what was going to be the sun room, will be a casual dining area surround by windows and french doors opening to an outside deck. I realize you don’t see what I’m explaining, but just trust me! It’s going to be amazing!
My favorite part of this process is going to the house every day to see the progress. The kids look so forward to going to “The Pool House” and playing in the giant yard! I can’t wait the make this house our home!
