With the critical electrical details sorted, it was onto some hard work. Mark and Tim attacked the living area and kitchen first, pulling gib off the walls, and demolishing everything that stood in the way of our vision.
This was quite a bit. The entire old kitchen, the hot water cupboard, a portion of the bathroom wall for the cavity slider, laundry and a portion of an old wall all had to be pulled out, amongst other things.
It was amazing to see how much they got done on the first day given that they hadn’t run into any unexpected tricky parts.
I must admit we had a bit of a “what are we doing?” moment, staring at the enormous pile of old house in the middle of the old living room. But we had confidence in our plan, vision, and everyone involved.
