Progress! Slow, but Sure!

Another good week for home remodeling - considering it was only a 4 day work week! Sorry a few of these pictures are a little blurry - I couldn't find my "real" camera and was using a cheapy one...

Here is my new kitchen wall! This is where some of the cabinets and the sink will go. It is nice to see what the new space will look like - seems pretty big to me :)

Here is the view from the front of the house. You can see what the new wall looks like again and a little of the "bar" area:
Here is the wall between my bedroom and the bathroom:
Just for scale, I put a chair here to show how much wider my new bedroom is - I stole a few feet from the new "bathroom":

And here is where my bathtub is going to be!! The plumbers are all over my house today to get the rough in done! In front of the bath tub is where my shower is going to be...

And here is one of my favorite pictures! This is where the asbestos USED to be!! They ripped it all out!! The basement looks super weird without any duct work, but I like it! Furnace should be out soon!! Here is the same area, just viewed from the other angle. A few pieces of the aluminum ducts are still there:
And say bye bye to this old water heater and furnace! They should be outta here soon!

Also, here is my "new" bathroom - ahh, such privacy! Nothing like some black tarp and hanging wires to make you feel like you are home!

At least my "new" bedroom has a fire place! I am planning to stay here this coming weekend, but not sure after that... I might stay here if the drywall dust and dirt doesn't chase me (and Sadie!) out!

It is nice to see progress! Also, a sewer guy came in last week and rootered out the pipes. Unlike the Rotter Rooter guy, he thinks my sewer line is actually ok and not in need of being replaced!! YAY!! But we are still not sure about the ejection pump for the basement bath - they aren't sure how that "poop" gets out to the main sewer line, so more investigation is to come!
