Construction!!!!

Many of you know that we are under a MAJOR construction project!!! We are enlarging the size of our kitchen, dining, and laundry plus adding a master bed/bath. I am so excited about this project but it is also bringing a few challenges. Right now I am without a kitchen. Ever cooked solely w/microwave, crock pot, elec. skillet, etc. def. a challenge. And, as of Monday I lost my washer/dryer. :-( The end IS near--hopefully it will all be done in 3 weeks! VERY EXCITING!!!

The first step of a huge process! Breaking up the old patio so construction can begin on top of it!

Can't get a much closer view. They loved watching the action right outside the window. Now they can watch action from the living room. :-)

Where there is construction there is fresh dirt/mud. I've quickly found out mud is a little boy magnet!!!!! I could post a lot of pics of these 3 little boys in this "mud dream world". Needless to say, the construction workers enjoyed some laughs as I let the little guys enjoy life to the fullest.


Check out the supervisor. :-) Mark was actually talking to some of them up on the roof.


These pics. were taken almost a month ago. I took a few pics. today and am amazed at the progress. The sheet rock is up and has been prepped to be textured. We choose paint colors and flooring this weekend. Stay tuned for more pics.
