We have begun to renovate our home. With two little boys, we were running out of room, so we decided to remove our deck and extend our kitchen. Eventually, this space will become our family, dining and mud room. It has been interesting – the sawdust everywhere and a huge dumpster sitting in my driveway isn’t ideal – but also not as bad as I had anticipated.
It is very exciting to come home and see the day-to-day progress. As of right now we have ½ a roof shingled, skylights installed and big holes where the windows and doors will be going. I’m just glad that our back door and wall are still in place, enabling us block out most of the mess… for now.
