The house continues to get smaller as Dad continues to demolish room after room. He has now moved on to the living room. As you can see all of those heavy bricks that once made up our fire place are now gone courtesy of a jack hammer and dad's muscles. I have been helping dad the past two days and I have not been this sore since a college swim practice. We have resorted to wearing masks so I guess that is a good thing. Anyway, after another long day on the homefront I am happy to say it is a mess!!!!Dad standing by the fire place. Those bricks were SOOOOO heavy!
Can't wait to see Santa come down our new chimney. I think he will like the renovations.
We had to empty this thing a ton of times. The plaster from the ceiling was also quite heavy and dusty. I can't imagine carrying all of that to a dumpster.
Here is a picture of Betsy's room, the laundry room, Mom and Dad's bedroom and the living room all combine. They are all one room right now. Pretty spacious I would say!

WOW! I don't even recognize that living room! I am so anxious to get home and see it all in person!
