We are doing the demolition ourselves to help cut some cost from the overall budget. Plus, let’s just say it makes Matt “feel like a man” when he gets to bust through the walls and make quick visual progress opening up the space.
Here is a little teaser that I posted on Instagram to celebrate the 4th of July since Matt worked on the house that morning:
First, I put large “x’s” on anything I wanted removed, and green tape on things I DON’T want ruined saying “keep.” This isn’t just for Matt, but also other trades when they are there so important things don’t get trashed.
We even took off this old Margaritaville switchplate as a memento to keep from the old version of the house. Not sure where we will relocate it yet, but it will return somewhere since we think it’s so hilarious someone actually bought this!
Now for more demolition pictures:

This is what you do when you’re done for the day:
