What's Going on Over at the House?
Lots of pics from the new house today.
Here's what was going on last week:
*the framers tore down the old roof over the sun room and part of the kitchen
*they re-framed the roof so that it would be more sloped to avoid water pooling in the flat areas
*they ripped out any remnants of the existing walls so that the electrical and plumbing could be redone
*the floor was ripped out and a new one was put down- this was a tremendous job because each different part of the kitchen/sun room had a different level floor under the hardwood floor
*new heating system is also being worked on- old radiators being taken out
*air conditioning is being added to the house
I know some of you will think that we are CRAZY to tear down this lovely space, but our house had virtually no insulation and it would have cost a ton in heating every month. We also had no air conditioning and window units use a ton of energy. So, even though it will cost a lot more initially, we will definitely save on the back end. We also, thought the layout of the kitchen island was a bit strange and wanted to change that.
Now on to the pictures:

Every time I go to the house and see it in this torn up state, I think, poor house. Then I try to remain calm and think happy thoughts about how amazing the space will look when it's all done. Sometimes it's overwhelming, but again- happy thoughts, happy thoughts, happy thoughts. :)
Come back again as I'll have some pictures of my super chic friend, Amy, and her amazing Brooklyn apartment!
