Out with the old…

We’ve been working hard around here lately. Several projects are underway and the house is in chaos but it will be worth it in the end. Joe has a very busy schedule so we fit in projects where we can. Our city was offering a spring clean up day where items could be brought to the landfill for no charge so we knew that we had to work fast to take advantage of all that we were going to need to get rid of.

The carpet in the living room has been ripped up. Over the past couple of weeks we’ve already repainted the kitchen, stained the cupboards and replaced the hardware, replaced the dishwasher and have also replaced the floor in the kitchen and another room in the house.  Last weekend we ripped out the old countertops and installed new ones and installed new ones. We still have the backsplash left to do and some lighting above the sink to switch out. It’s a lot of work but will be worth it when all is said and done.

The truck was FULL of demolition debris to haul to the transfer station.

Once a year in the spring, the city has a community wide clean up day where you are allowed to bring your items free of charge. This was the line when we arrived at 10:00 am.

Like I said in my last post, what a difference a week makes in Minnesota weather. Last week was coats and snow boots and the weekend was warm enough for shorts. Go figure. Annie was digging wearing Joe’s safety glasses.

We came home and immediately got to work installing the countertops.

And then the sink.

We aren’t finished yet, but I’ll be sure to post pictures when we’re all done.
