Renovation Progress -Window and Demo Pictures

I am back with a progress update on my kitchen/first floor renovation.

Last week, during my Window Dilemma panic, I was deciding whether or not to go with the transom window in my kitchen.  Thank you to everyone who expressed opinions on the subject.  If you follow me on Instagram you know by now that I went ahead with the transom window!

I am so happy with how it turned out and now my kitchen has a ton of light!

Big difference from this, huh?

It’s so crazy around here, I didn’t even get a chance to share some fun demo pictures with you!

On the first morning, a crew of eight guys arrived and immediately began moving the larger pieces of furniture to other rooms and to the garage.

I felt like we were moving.

I couldn’t believe the difference in floor color

when we pulled up the rugs!

Then it seemed there were guys everywhere, tearing into into the whole downstairs!  My son almost missed the bus because he was so excited to see the demolition!

Kind of sad seeing my house in such disarray.

They wasted no time ripping things out!

They removed the family room carpet so fast,

that I never even saw them doing it!

I didn’t even get a chance to take a picture of the fireplace coming off but since then, it has been framed…

Eventually, it will be covered in stone.

Yesterday, they installed the hardwood floors, so we are really moving along…

Do you have any renovation plans for your home?

If not, could I come use your kitchen?…
