Remodel Day 24

Yup.  This is what I was talking about yesterday.  The struggles I’ve had over the past few weeks with regards to eating and exercise.  Anna and I are in the midst of another remodel.  Yes, we did work on the kitchen just a couple of years ago, but this was time for the wholesale redux!  The demolition went well–it was all done in about three days.  And then there was the drywall work, and the electrical, and the plumbing.  The flooring and cabinets.  And that’s where we are right now.  Over three weeks later.  I hope to finish the cabinets and trim this week–and maybe the countertops this weekend.  Pictures are at the end of this post. 

But that means that we’re well over three weeks into this–and with no stove or oven…heck, nothing.  Not even the kitchen sink!  And eating out is difficult.  Sheesh!

I know that’s no excuse–I can still make good decisions–but man, that’s a challenge.  Today was a serious win, though–under my goal!

Flooring in and cabinets started

Oh, I guess that I forgot to mention that we’re redoing the kitchen…and the dining room…and the sitting room…and the TV room.  Pretty much the whole downstairs except for the bathroom.  Yet.

Sitting Room as it was...

Flooring in and fireplace covered.

And Anna and I are doing 95% of the work on our own, too.   Can you see why we’re tired?

    I can sure see why you are tired! Wow! Great that you can do most of this work yourselves though. Love the look of the flooring.
