They have torn out the kitchen and the flooring.



They are also putting siding on the house. The lower half will be rockwork.

Is this an easy fix? Just seems like they got ahead of themselves.

Sure. They just disconnect the eletrical and pull the cable out from underground and put it into the new electrical box. Same with the gas line. The new gas and electrical box are only about three feet away. We just have to wait for the Gas Company and Edison to do it.

They have started stucoing the house. The first coat is on. They have to wait a week for the second coat. That should be happening now. The lower part of front of the house will be stonework. Kitchen cabinets are ready to be installed. After that comes flooring and counter tops. Light fixtures are being bought and tile has been selected for the new shower.

This where I write a lot of checks to lots of people.





Yes. The cat is still alive.

This has been interesting to watch, shows difference in how things are done in different countries.
I think the only thing we do the same so far has been putting the frames up and the electrical :)
Be good when its finished.
What happens with that coating on the outside of the lower part of the house?
The problem with America is stupidity I'm not saying there should be a capital punishment for stupidity, but why don't we just take the safety labels off of everything and let the problem solve itself

Good question. Here is the new rock work on the lower half of the house. The siding and trim have been painted. The stuco in the back of the house will be painted next week.






Outside house lights


Taping of the drywall. They should be texturing it now.

I've been following the progress bit by bit, but WOW!  I didn't realize you were doing a complete renovation.  The house looks awesome.  When do you think you'll be done?
