First of all I just wanted to say thank you so much for the overwhelmingly positive comments on last week's One Room Challenge reveal post as well as all the love on facebook, & instagram, etc. We really do appreciate it! We received so much feedback on our hex tile floors, we thought we'd share some details and a few tips to help any of you looking to do something similar.
With the holidays around the corner we've been super busy, but the demolition video is finally edited and ready to go! When you watch the video, it'll seem like all smashing & crashing, but in actual fact, the backhoe operator was quite the artist. He used the machine like an extension of his arm - in some instances, only removing a few bricks at a time. It was pretty amazing to watch. Anyway, here it is - what it looks like when a few hundred thousand dollars comes crashing to the ground
The demo crew has been VERY busy while we were away. With the exception of the one load bearing wall frame & the main floor bathroom, this house is gutted! Before-ish - Main floor, looking toward the bathroom Demo - Getting started Gutted! Ok, we know what you're thinking
After having a little fun last night, we decided to leave the rest to the professionals who came in today to get started with the real demo work. Here's a quick peek at the progress at the end of the first day. Next week we'll be blogging on vacation as we're heading out Saturday morning for a Caribbean cruise with the family. We'll check in on the demolition progress when we return.
