The demolition guys worked hard all morning removing the flooring and pounding down nails and staples. They also removed the old dishwasher and cleaned the remaining wallpaper glue from the breakfast nook walls.
Everything is done except for around the front hall doorway, where the plaster wall needs to be scored so it can be removed without damaging a wall we are keeping, and around the kitchen window, where the window needs to be taken out before the rest of the plaster can be removed.
The electrician is supposed to start work tomorrow, so things are progressing nicely.
We haven’t had any major surprises of the unwanted variety, but there may be a potential problem where the bathroom connects to the stack. Only a plumber will be able to tell for sure whether or not everything is copacetic, but if the pipe needs replacing, now is the time to do it, when everything is exposed. So far, so good. 🙂
