Demo & Rebuild

I’m back to the construction zone from a whilrwind trip to NYC and, like I’ve been mentioning for the past few weeks, we’re now down to the studs at our place. (!!)  We’re reworking the floorplan- closing doorways, adding new ones, moving walls, removing them… plumbing is being moved, windows are getting enlarged, we’re adding a fireplace, redoing the bathrooms & kitchen… it’s madness!! (but the good kind of madness 😉  We have the air off because there’s so much dust flying around & we want to keep it out of our upstairs “apartment” as it’s been dubbed… But as I type this morning, I’m hoping it stays warm a little longer because there is definitely a chill in the air & there’s no heat for us until we get the bulk of the contruction completed.

One of the biggest changes we’re making is opening up the kitchen to the living room…  Here it is before:

And here it is now:
 

 
They’ve finished sanding down the beams.  The red-brown stain is now GONE and we’ve exposed the bare pine.  (How I wish that pine had been exposed over the past 40 years, aging gracefully but oh well… It’s very raw now & we had it hand scraped & wire brushed.  )  We’ve also had insulation added between the beams because before there was only a layer of plywood before the roof & we’re making it a bit more energy efficient. 
 
And of course as  you can see… the wall is DOWN!!!  The kitchen is now completely open to the living room.  We also expanded the kitchen two feet to the right (taking space from the dining room) so that it spans the whole width of the living room now. 
 
Floors are going down this week & next (more on that as soon as I have pics!) and I CANNOT WAIT.  Once we have floors, we can move our things inside from the garage & pod.  Dave went diving in the pod for clothes last week & climbed over all of the front stuff to get to the Fall stuff in the back…. He dug himself a little hole and climbed down into it….  And I  honestly thought he was buried by the stuff at one point.  (thanks to him of course.) 
 
 

{it’s since been rearranged}
 
Me, after realizing I hadn’t heard him talk in a while:  “Dav, are you okay in there??”
him, very quiet/ far away: “Hellllllllp”
At that point I was about to launch the jogger strollerfrom the pod to the woods behind me as I screamed “DAVE?!!!!!!”
Then I heard “No no no no no!!  I’m fine!!” in a completely normal volume. 
Then laughter.
Oh wow.
 
He’s very lucky I couldn’t reach him at that point.
 
We’ve had the discussion before of “fright or flight” in emergency situations.  I’m a “fight” kind of girl.  There’s tyipcally no hesitation in my reactions and I find myself doing things before I’ve even thought about them.  Thanks to him, (yes am still bitter 😉  I almost launched our Christmas breakables into the woods. 
 
Anyway, things are happening around here & I’m in the midst of planning the kithen (and pretty much everything else around here) so I’ll be back this week to share some plans!!  Off to some clients for the day & keep your fingers crossed we find our nanny soon!!  My head is busting with things I need to remember & people I need to speak to… send some brain space my way. 
I’ve never been so busy in my life. 
I’m not at the breaking point yet but feel like I should be. 
Maybe once you actually get here, you’re too busy to break. ??? 😉
 
 

{at least I’ve got what matters most}

Hmm it looks like your website ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I submitted and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I as well am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to the whole thing. Do you have any suggestions for beginner blog writers? I’d definitely appreciate it.|

With havin so much written content do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright infringement? My site has a lot of unique content I’ve either written myself or outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my permission. Do you know any ways to help protect against content from being stolen? I’d definitely appreciate it.|
