It was messy and loud (they used a jack hammer) but they worked hard. This was all before the crew could start.
It looks like they started digging an underground tunnel.
Max helping to load the concrete mixer from Home Depot.
Dry wall, framing lumber and insulation.
Our big helper!
Original studded bathroom.
Original hallway/under stairs area.
Max working hard apparently with a bike tire pump (who knows where he finds this stuff).
Back craft room/extra bedroom.
Looking into the playroom/living room/kitchen area. The major change in this room is knocking out the side wall area/big beam to make it a more open space.
Looking in from the back kitchen area to the new playroom/living room.
You can see the concrete all filled in here and the steps are being taken out to start turning them.
These next photos are progress photos after the demo and before the framing/insulation.
The framing in progress.
Then there was more of the same thing going on for a while so I went back down once some of the drywall was done. You can see the puttying also. Man, is it dirty down there from all the sanding.
These steps aren't done, but just wanted to note the progress.
Looking into the kitchen area. New closet area with AC and hot water heater has been moved.
This is mom's room and her cool ceiling. The door leads to her walk in closet.
Her washer/dryer will go to the right into tucked into a corner.
