A little recap:
Week 1: Demo, initial inspection, stake out space, footers
Week 2: Footer inspection, lay brick skirt
Week 3: Begin framing, week cut short due to rain (thus the tarps!)
Hardest part of process: the noise!!! And the interruptions. Don’t even get me started on how hard it is to have a homeschool day in the midst of this.
Best part of process: knowing how much the extra space will help our homeschool days in the future, constant entertainment for our kids and our neighbors. We talk to way more neighbors than we ever have before, and at least three have told us that we’re inspiring them to consider their own renovation project!
