The Grand Remodel: The Construction Phase, week 1

The first week of construction had a lot going: All of the demolition, excavation for the addition, some initial interior framing, and forms for the addition. The addition — the future dining-living room and part of the new kitchen — will replace for the Ugly Back Room, at the same location but with a slightly wider footprint.

Onward to the pictures! As usual, more at the gallery.

Bam! No more Ugly Back Room. The debris was hauled off, of course.

They started to put up forms, which will become a wooden frame mold for the new foundation.

I’m a bit late in posting this entry, since it’s now the second week of remodeling. I continue to blame the Neverending Upper Respiratory Crud of Doom which slows me down far too much. Throw in the current chaos of living in a half-house, and the inevitable cram of selecting More Things, and, well, you get the picture. 😉 I’ll try to maintain weekly updates, nevertheless. They just might not be…timely.
