PROJECT DARKSTONE: Day 4

There is no way I am going to be able to keep track of these day numbers, I just want to make that clear right now.

My inbox was flooded today with questions about our remodel (my aunt sent me an email.  My inbox is very small and can't hold much.) so here is the skinny:  Our kitchen as it was was built without a foundation under it.  The original brick home was built around 1900, and then the kitchen was added on in the 30's or 40's (that is a total guess) but instead of building a foundation, they just stuck the 2x4's straight into the ground.  Real fancy like.  When we moved in 11 years ago we jacked it up a bit and stuck some concrete piers under there for support, but we always knew we would have to replace the whole thing.

That is what is happening now.  We're tearing the whole thing off and starting over.  We're also tearing off our master closet and the downstairs bathroom to make the space more manageable.

Here is a picture of the current layout of our house.

FIRST FLOOR:
1st Floor - Original House


SECOND FLOOR:
2nd Floor - Before Renovation

Once those are gone, some professionals will come in and build something better in their place.  Any questions?


Here is what happened today:

We got the dumpster moved.

Then we stacked everything on our porch and in the front yard.
