Demolition Begins

Yesterday was the official start of "construction". As in most things, you have to go backwards for a bit before moving ahead. At this point, the only visible signs of construction is the hole that was dug near the front door in preparation for a small foundations. There were ripping and pounding sounds coming from the inside.

Demolition is a necessary but tough phase to go through. It's a lot like buyer's-remorse in that you know the "sensible" thing to do is to drive that old car a bit longer. The house was perfectly fine in almost every functional aspect. But there's more to a house than practicality - there's also personality.

  1. Looks like there's no turning back now, Mark (and Carrie)! Looks like you have planned it well and hope it goes as planned, eve though there will be hidden things that crop up. Good luck. You are on the way!
