As of yesterday morning the crew was here getting started on our kitchen/living room wall take-down project! As I type I am typing on our counter, that is randomly in the middle of the kitchen, with plywood on the floor and a frame wall supporting the ceiling. The log wall is totally showing and most of the plaster from the kitchen side is gone.
Above is the kitchen wall where the cupboards used to be that separates the living room and dining room. Below is the opposite side of the wall on the living room side with the frame wall and a plastic barrier to keep stuff a little bit cleaner.
Cora was such a good dog today while the workers were here. The cats and dog stayed in our bedroom and the rabbit and bird in our closet. James and I spent most of the time upstairs but did come down to watch for a bit and go outside for awhile too. Cora decided to sample the plywood while she could… she has never taken a nap on it before and may never get another chance! The plywood is just protecting the floor, not actually doing anything for the project.
