We have progress!

Hot damn! The family room renovation has begun. The contractor showed up this morning, just like he said he would. The electrician didn't but he'll be here Tuesday. The room as we knew it has already changed. The miserable painted oak trim around the fireplace is gone, gone, gone (yay!!) and we have the beginnings of a mantle. The framing for a half-wall that breaks the room into two distinct areas is up and waiting for the electrician and some dry wall.

The tile for the fireplace wall should be in within the week and the cabinets are in process. We have
to pick up paint, schedule the flooring for installation, and decide on cabinetry for the other side of the room.

We're on a roll and I be excited!!

Half wall (support pole will be enclosed)
