Demo/construction day is almost upon us. 

Ghon is taking off Thursday and Friday to work and prepare; I will be off Friday to do some shopping, food prep, and work.  We've had a sitter cancel and a new sitter (Thanks, Jen!!) step in so that we don't have to worry about the kids. Ghon has ordered some additional lumber to round out the projects.

There will be plenty of drink and snacks.

At 4:00, we can light a fire outside, and we will work in the house til dark; hang by the fire as long as you'd like.
We'll be back at it Sunday - with any leftovers. :)

I mentioned that the living room floor was leveled on Saturday. Here are some before and after pics:
The light stradles the middle of the floor. You can see the slope down on each side...and all the plywood and shim wood Ghon had to remove that was previously leveling out the floor.

The newly leveled floor, well, at least the right side.
