This past week saw the end of the destruction stage of our reno. The back brick wall of our kitchen, and most of Maria’s back wall were removed and a steel beam inserted to hold up our new structure.
And here’s the back structure ready to move to the next stage.
This is shot from the back of the addition to the front of the house:
Here’s Maria’s back wall exposed,
and here’s the hole for the new window box:
And finally, this is the framed in window box for Maria.
Our new windows and doors arrived, and the flooring supplier made some preliminary measurements. But the biggest sign that the destruction is over is the departure of dumpster from our front lawn! Time to start constructing on the inside.
