Demolition Day

All of my blubbering about the lack of renovation paid off! (Sorry, Obo, this will not work for you). R and his little helper spent all day yesterday tearing down the wall between two of the tiny bedrooms to make one larger bedroom. It's not a huge change, but it does let in a bit more light, and I'm sitting in the room as I type this. In fact, each family member is in a different room of the house happily going about his or her business (don't fret, Buckaroo's business is sleeping).
Eventually, the wall to R's left will disappear, too, but not for a while. We want to make sure we still have a guest room -- you know, in case we have guests (hint hint)-- until we've added some sleeping space downstairs.

All of this excitement has definitely satisfied my need for a bit of change, and R says he feels like the house is really ours now. We've started something!

I love the look - removing the wall really opens up the house and lets in more light. Renovation does require a few extra hands - though they are small - it's hard work. Love, Mom

Looking good! Kevin wonders where "we'll puke next time we come", and Monkey Girl expressed concern that there will be "no more monkeys jumping on the bed!" Can't wait to see more!!!
