(Everything was cleared out.)
(This is all my furniture jammed into our formal dining room.)
(And we still had some room for stuff.)
And when I got home for lunch today this was what I found.
This is our good friend, Fred, helping us taking out the nails.
So this weekend should be fun. There is going to be demolition, dust, and lots of work. But I think it is going to be worth it. We are going to be able to look at our house and know we did it (at least the majority of it on our own). This is going to be some serious sweat equity and a labor of love.
