Lets move onward.
So if you havent picked up on it by now I am writing in the past tense- I did not get the idea to write a blog about our experiences until about 5 months into the project. So I am playing a bit of catch up trying to get the blog caught up to our current state.
After the closing went through we tackled 3 areas at once. The stairs, the utility bathroom, & kitchen. First thing first was DEMOLITION. The boys tore out everything themselves- all the flooring, walls and fixtures in the bathroom, the stairs and all cabinets & counters in the kitchen. Nothing was working in the orignal layout so we had already decided to start completely from scratch.
|No more cabinets! You can see in the top right corner the start of the original switchback for the stairs. There is still|
drywall and the vinyl flooring in this photo but that was all removed before we put in new cabinets and fixtures.
