Holey Batman!

I came home from work today and my bubble world was gone! All the clear tarps that divided the living areas from the areas being remodeled were taken down. Then there were holes in several places, like this: They are finishing up the electrical work and need to route the new circuits in the kitchen to the circuit board outside the garage. Since this was the first floor, they can't go up into the attic, so they made holes. Our house looks extra spacious right now, because the tarp dividers are gone, and there's no kitchen. So I took the opportunity to take some photos so that you get the overall picture of what's happening. This is the view from the family room into the kitchen. This is the view from the kitchen into the family room. It'll be different when the kitchen is done, because the peninsula will obstruct the view into the family room. Finally here's some new stuff that's happened in the last couple of days. The tar in the shower to waterproof the bottom: The new window in the shower went in today: A little while after I came home, Todd came home with fish tacos from Rubios. It's Fish Taco Tuesday at Rubios, so they're only $1.25 each! I was too busy eating to take photos of it. :p Todd was excited to watch his Cleveland Cavaliers stomp on the Detroit Pistons in the NBA playoffs. We never used to eat dinner on the couch in front of the TV, so it seems like we're kids getting away with something, LOL.


  1. Yay! Glad to see the renos are going well. LOL it's so true about eating in front of the tv. I love doing it though. :)

  2. No special wonders that I have found in the wonder drink...if you google kombucha you can find all sorts of professed health benefits and just as many "avoid that stuff, you'll die of food poisoning" type stuff, I just happen to like it - it's sort of like soda only not sweet and made from slightly fermented tea.

    Remodel looks like it's going well - and rather rapidly!

  3. Love the window! So, when's this remodeling project supposed to be done? It seems to be moving very fast..probably not to you ;) And..is basketball still going on? I thought that once UNC won the NCAA tournament, all basketball was over.. :D Have a great day!

  4. Oh Christine, I get the heebie jeebies just looking at all the upheaval! I'm glad things are going along so quickly!

  5. looking good. I love fish tacos I am jealous at 8:33 in the morning they sound so good ;-) a window in the bath is very nice. ;-)

  6. It's coming along!! How fun! I always forget about the Tuesday fish tacos...we did Tuesday 2 for 1 pizza last night instead. I agree with sitting in front of the TV...I almost feel like I'm such a bad mom when we do it.

  7. It really looks spacious! So cool with that curved wall, and the new bathroom window will be so great. Big enough to let the light in, but no one will look inside. Nice.

    We eat so often in front of the TV that I think it is luxury to eat in the kitchen at the table.. ;) This is mostly when we are alone of course, when Linus is here we always sit at the kitchen table. I want him to have that special time when we just eat and talk to eachother.

  8. I´m late today, Christine! Sorry!

    Great to see, the remodeling is going on! Step by step! It must be wonderful when it is ready!

    Fish tacos sounds delicious and made me hungry... but I´m also tired and have to go to bed now.

    Wish you a good evening/night/or morning...

    And send you many HUGS


Thanks for stopping by! I love to hear from you!
