Not completely floored. Yet.

The contractors left about ten minutes ago.  They put in a very good day and got a ton done.  The family room isn't completely finished, but it will be tomorrow, and then they'll start putting in trim.  

I spent the past couple of days painting the trim. 
 Here it is, stacked all neatly along the side of the part of the room that isn't done yet.  It-Runs-In-Front-of-Me was shut in A's room for most of the work day, but toward the end we let her out so she could supervise.  She kept the contractors entertained by allowing them to entertain her.

Dakota is taking a well-deserved rest after being moved about ten feet to complete the last stretch of flooring laid before calling it a day.  I'm taking a break too, but not for long.  There's too much to do, and I'm hoping to get some writing done tonight.

I can't wait until it's all done!

I'm simply floored by all this!

Seriously, though...remakes are fun (except when paying for them).

Just think: your house will have all those new vibes for you to explore!

Losing the sound-dampening is probably the most shocking change next to the appearance. Echo echo echo ...

We picked up the furniture for the kids' rooms today. Lots of boxes on the floor in the family room now. It wasn't as expensive as I'd feared. I don't know when I'll be able to get the family room bookshelves. We'll be creative in the meantime.

Oh wow… your home will look great on completion of it's furnishing.
