Nothing makes our hearts beat faster than the thought of work actually getting started (this is what renovation does to your idea of romantic). That day finally arrived yesterday as some of the first floor walls were knocked down.
Over the last several months this project has become our baby. So much so that we have been thinking about installing a nanny-cam just so we can watch its progress from work–make sure it is being treated well.
Now we go back to thinking about the actual design of things like kitchens and bathrooms. We also need to pick out new doors, windows and floors for those that will be replaced.
