So - we haven't had a renovation update in a couple weeks because there was nothing to report. We had called out a structural engineer, and were just waiting for him to get us his drawings so that the team could get to work. Finally - after a lot of calling and harassing him, he got us the drawings and they got started. They installed one new steal beam across the doorway between the kitchen and mudroom, and another along the side wall. Then after about 2 days with the beams - they quickly put the sheetrock back up and got the walls all finished up and nice.

Upstairs, they finished up the sheetrock and started working on the trim. They also installed the new vanity and medicine cabinets - so it's beginning to look like a bathroom.

So now that they delay is over - things should really start moving quickly. We have cabinets on their way, and a new floor ready to go down in the kitchen. I'm hoping everything pulls together fast and we can almost be done by Thanksgiving.
