OK, not really. But tomorrow, demolition for the big remodel begins. They’ll be gutting our kitchen, laundry area, and guest lavatory and building shiny new versions. The contractor is estimating six weeks, while saying he doesn’t think it will take quite that long. I hope it doesn’t, we’ll be without a kitchen or washer and dryer for that period. But we’ve hired the best folks we can find, we like the guys, so here we go. Pictures to follow.
