to be honest the only thing that sold me on the house was the wood burning stove in the kitchen and the potential for the carpet to come up and the wood floors in the house to be refinished. fast forward back to now, on Monday night we were talking about going ahead and taking up the stone around stove so that the floor could go all the way across the room and then rebuilding the stone around it smaller than it currently is.
Yesterday the abatement team came out to measure the kitchen. they told my hubby that they were going to need to take up the stone around the wood burning stove to treat that too. so looks like we are getting that taken care of. another decision (the stone that surrounds the stove) but an exciting one. you can see how the stone went all the way to the wall. we are fine with the placement of them stove we just wish that we could have the walking space through the area where the stone is touching the wall. now we get to reclaim that space. yay yay yay.
|see how the stone goes all the way to the wall? we are going to redesign it where we still have the hearth and then some of the side for wood but not that bit all the way to the wall.|
so next Friday some more of the work continues.
update on Little girls room. they came in yesterday to finish taking out the floor in her room. so this is what it currently looks like.
