We returned home to find the entire ceiling of the kitchen area removed! Looks so awesome with the slope of the roof revealed now throughout the entire living area. The horribly ugly mirrored closets in the master bedroom have also been removed.It's amazing to see the space open up. The carpet is also out of the bedroom. It's a bit overwhelming how much trash is generated in a renovation project. I'm really thankful for our crew who are great guys and working hard every day.
We will be without the kitchen for about a month because it takes 2 weeks for the cabinets to come in and then another 2 weeks after that to sort the countertops. We've rigged a small space to try and find some semblance of order. We have our grill and a microwave oven and a coffee pot. There is also no shortage of convenience food and easy to prepare stuff but we don't want to eat junk all the time. Well, OK, we do WANT to eat junk all the time but don't think that we actually should!
So when the guys come today, they will tear out the master bath and continue to work on the kitchen space. It's actually pretty fun and so far, the chaos isn't making me too crazy. Again, being able to be outside is a big help.
I had a good laugh this morning when I realized that we have no kitchen and the floor is concrete, but we have a big TV and internet! Priorities, right?! Well, these little creature comforts help make this shell feel like a home right now! Oh, and that little creature in front of the TV is pretty great too!
