The new year brings a life of huge change. I'm working here from home, with my own clients and projects, and not part of a big agency and team. It's exciting and I'm fortunate to have plenty to keep me busy. And at the very same time, this home is not the home it's been for the past 8 years. We've just moved into the demolition and construction phase of a major renovation, with a completely new kitchen, and a second bathroom being put in on the top floor. We decided we love where we live and our house, but it needed some work to become a little more comfortable. Our former guest bedroom is transforming into a decadent bathroom with a huge shower and radient floor heating. But that means getting water and sewer to a second floor, thus opening up walls and the ground from the sewer line outside all the way up the walls of the living room and into the upstairs. Here's what the room looks like today:
And today the kitchen is being demolished. Our fridge was moved to the basement yesterday, and we've set up our "camp kitchen" featuring a microwave in the basement. Tomorrow I'll post photos of the kitchen before and after demo. I'm scared to look myself.
My mom said we'll look back on this time and laugh. AdRi advised I find an outlet for my frustration with any of it. Hmm. Lucky you blogreaders. Today? No frustration. But here's a picture from the second floor looking out at the shitter in the driveway. Pretty.
