Day 8 and Day 9

Days 5 & 6 were weekend days, so no work.

Day 7 was apparently a light day, not even worth blogging.

Day 8:


A certain feeling of preparations being underway...




Mostly subtle changes on Day 8, but this bracing is definitely new.


Day 9

The refuse piles are moved back to their Day 4 position...


And a new doorway is framed.


I think he said that's a 10x6. A hard piece to cut, no doubt.


And this is temporary bracing to, gulp, hold up the ceiling.


Link to Day 4.

Progress is good...I'd be nervous about the ceiling thing, too.

I guess it does seem to be moving slowly... but that's just an old-house thing. Nothing is square in these old places... nothing. NOTHING. Argh. :)

It will look great when it's done, though!

It might be normal for it to be slow, but it must still be hard to live without a kitchen. You do want it to be done the right way, so hang in there, Chuck.

My son and daughter-in-law just redid theirs and I can't wait to see it . They had surprises, too, but the house was more like 60-years old instead of 100.

Moving slowly will give your internal mapping system time to reconfigure the doorway locations, avoiding those embarassing moments when you walk into walls where the door used to be, or fall through a doorway where a wall used to be - Ha!
