Last night the hubs and I stopped by the house to check on the progress. If you couldn't tell already, this will definitely be an every day occurrence when we know the crew is working there during the day. We figure, the closer we keep an eye on our remodel, the less things can go astray. (Don't get me wrong...I'm sure we are going to have our fair share of snafus, but hopefully they'll be less severe if we catch them early on.)
Anywho, when we pushed the front door open we were welcomed by the absence of the wall studs that ran along the house, from front to back. They were totally removed and a temporary, supporting wall had been put up in the living room, to carry the load. The part of the wall that ran along the kitchen/dining area was not a supporting wall, so when those studs were removed, there was no need to put up a temporary wall there. It was so nice and open!! Every day we are blown away by seeing our house evolve.
