What did we get ourselves into?

It all started with our outdated kitchen needing an update and then the project grew and grew...

 

I have only great things to say about Bill our contractor.  He is always on time, takes the time to explain everything for us and most importantly does what he says he is going to do. After 2-3 months of going back and forth with plans and estimates we agreed to get the project started.  Which now includes:

 

  • A new kitchen with extension
  • New home office
  • Moving a bathroom
  • Siding
  • Roof
  • Central air
  • Additional bedroom
  • "minor" updating in the living room

 

Well, the next thing I know this dumpster was in my driveway... and my roof was being ripped off for the extension (yeah the kitchen is still part of the plans.)  It seems that every few hours something interesting is being delivered...

 

I told my wife we could save a lot of money while adding an extra bathroom by leaving this in our yard...  needless to say that didn't fly.

 

 

 

So now the project is in full swing.  People are coming and going, dust, wood, sawing, banging, plumbing etc going on all day but I am told when it is all said and done "your house is going to be great".

Oh and we are going to be living in the house the whole time.

Wish me luck! We are one week in and the fun is just getting started.

Now off to pick some cabinets, faucets, tile, siding, granite...

If I get time Ill keep you all updated on the various activities during this project.  It should be fun!!!
