Remodeling update

You Know, I've had a bazillion people tell me that this will all be worth it.
I can tell you I have been extremely impressed with my "Builders"( Chancee's term) They are clean as they work, they make sure I know what's happening when, and they are fast!!!!It's really nice. I've had a fun day today living on the other side of this plastic listening to them as they tore the wall out. The comments about this house and what they've found hidden in the walls have been humorous. I'll tell you what, Grandma was "green" She recycled all kinds of things in her walls, old magazines for sheet rock, Plastic grocery bags for insulation, etc. So why are they pushing this "green" thing so much when it doesn't even meet code? This world is a bit screwy.
On the other side of the plastic sheet, this is what they've done. The windows will be here tomorrow as well as the electrician and the plumber. We're also having a new septic system put in. I was told that they wouldn't let the electrician or plumber leave with out finishing the job so that they could get everything finished up with in the next two weeks. It'll be amazing to see.
Now here something else amazing. I just had Mike bring dinner over. He made some chicken and mashed potatoes and gravy. What a brother, what a guy!! who needs Relief Society? I'm kidding.
Let's just hope in a month when everything is finished, but my kitchen cabinets, that I'll still be sane.

I'm so excited for you! I can't wait to see it all finished, and I wish I was around to help.

I LOVE the treasures you find in the walls of old houses. I grew up next door to a 100+ year old house (on our property) so as kids we spent a lot of time looking for "prizes".
