Home Renovation Begins

This weekend, we truly began our home renovation project. My brother came to visit, and was a HUGE help. There’s only so many things Andrew and I can do alone, partially because (as Patrick put it) I have “ninny” arms. Sure, these things are solid but I simply couldn’t lift the huge island granite with sink stuck on, etc.

So, check out what we accomplished on the most fun days of a renovation: DEMO DAYS!

  1. Carpet tear out in dining room + living room. This is huge because this is the room we’ll start to lay wood floor in first (typically rule here is the longest wall in the house is what you start with).
  2. Kitchen island and bottom cabinets tear out (almost there…)
  3. Kitchen floor tear out.
    1. Check out that long crow bar looking thing? Kind of like the cat’s claw, but just a huge version. This was a life saver for the wood floor and tile tear out. Highly recommend!
  4. Tile tear out in entry!

And now for getting things started to get put back! Starting with the living/dining paint. What better time to paint than when there’s no floor to drip on?! See next post for that debacle… project turned out great.

Don’t forget your safety sunglasses, er… safety goggles. I knew I kept these for a reason…
