The first week of the reno is done, with the second week having started early this morning. To say progress has been made is the understatement of the year. According to Jordan "you will never find a harder working crew". Based on the physical evidence of our house and the work ethic of the men involved, I'd have to agree.
We are very blessed that our builder is not only Jordan's long time friend/the best man from our wedding, but an incredibly talented and creative builder. His team is outstanding and our house is in the most capable hands I could imagine. They are traveling from out of town to work for us each week, so they work very long hours in order to maximize their time away from their families/lives. I can't fathom how they have accomplished so much in so little time. Along with a crew working on the demolition and construction, an electrician, a plumber, and their respective crews are there today. It's all so overwhelming and exciting at once to visit the house each day and see what's been completed.
We're all tired and still a bit out of sorts from the upheaval, but hopefully week two will begin to feel a bit more "normal". In the mean time, here's just a handful of the million photos we took last week. Stay tuned for weekly updates each Monday.
Can I remind you that all of this (and a whole lot more) happened in just four days? Amazing or what?!
