Ava helping to remove hardware. Jack and Natalie are studying for exams in background…although it looks like Natalie might be texting. Hmmmm!
Kinda hard taking out the bench that I build a few years ago but I have new and improved plans for this space!
We didn't mess around! By late Friday night, we were ripping down drywall!
What a MESS! I can not tell you how many tubs of drywall I hauled out to the 20 yard, 6' tall dumpster! We are on our 3rd.
Cutting a hole for the exterior door from mudroom to garage.
After the drywall, we started taking down and moving walls.
We ended up hiring a plumber, a long time family friend, to come and move the 'pooper' and do some other rough plumbing work that Marc just didn't have time for because of our 2 week time frame. Totally worth it and in the end, Marc was happy to have the help!
We are also enclosing our porch into a space for the kids to hang out with friends since I have pretty much ruined any chance of creating that space in the basement with my business:)
After 2 weeks of demo, plumbing, new window install, moving and building walls, tons of electrical work, many trips to both Lowes and Homey D, and a dozen other things I am forgetting to mention, we are now ready for drywall!
