Actually, we have no family room or downstairs bathroom either. Alex started on Thanksgiving with the demolition of the downstairs. Pulled up all the carpet and pad then started in on the take down of the half bath. Today, we have no drywall at all downstairs. It made for a great place for the boys to drive their remote control cars one day though!
Alex is rebuilding the wall between the laundry room and the bathroom to make room for the washer and dryer to be turned the other way. That will make it so much nicer in the laundry room. It's a very small room to begin with! He couldn't take out the wall all together because the plumbing wouldn't cooperate. He's also building a couple of soffits so that we can install some more lights. Plus he's got an electrician coming to redo some wiring and move some outlets. He's got everything mapped out for each day, how many hours it's going to take him to do certain things. He's got Thad over here tonight helping him out, hopefully that should make it so he's on him time schedule! Tomorrow I'm supposed to go pick out tile and carpet.
He plans on having everything done by the 20th. He tells me I'm not allowed to go into labor before then! I don't plan on it, but you never know. If that happens it will make it difficult to get downstairs done. It will be nice to have everything finished! We already have a new tv that's going down there sitting in the box patiently waiting to be opened. We'll move all the boy's toys down there and half of the room will be a play room for them. That way we'll have room for baby number 5 in the boys room.
I have taken lots of pictures I just don't have them on the computer yet. Check back and you can see all the progress!
