Kitchen Demo: Part 2

Well, everything is gone! The old closet, the cabinets, the counter tops, the appliances, the bad tile on the wall, and even the floor! Demo day stunk! My dad and brothers forgot to hang tarps during the first hour which resulted in my entire home filling up with a plaster smoke. I'm talking the entire house! My room, my sons room, the living room, EVERY room!!! As soon as I realized what had happened I made them stop and hang a tarp and I quickly ran all around the house trying to open all the windows! In doing this I put the palm of my hand through a window! Yes people, I apparently have super human strength. Along with the broken window, some drapes got cracked. At this point I had to drive my little man over to grandma's house and race home to clean so we could continue to live in my house during the remodel. In an effort to vent, I called Lindsay and she actually offered to come over and clean with me!! Who does that?! So me and Lindsay wore awesome face masks and washed floors, wiped down couches, dusted tables, and cleaned off toys. I am so thankful I did not have to do that alone!!
My dad came back the day after and built the frame for the new closet next to the front door.
Next step, new electric ran and dry wall hung. To be continued....
