Well, we are really and truly into it.
The basement has been emptied except for the washer and dryer. Our contractor (brilliant man that) has figured out how to run a couple of lines up to the deck and will relocate the machines for the duration of the construction! Cold water? I can do that vs spending time at the laundromat!
Last Friday they started stripping the stucco and some of the boards.
Today it was framing a couple of openings, tearing out everything inside, jack hammering the foundation and other noisy bits of fun.
I took a few photos late at night – they are even scarier
Oh, and they are not exactly silent when working either.
