It feels like we have been living in a construction zone forever now. The next part of our construction is removing the balcony, part of the roof and the pushing out the walls to make the kids' bedrooms larger. After 3 months of submitting and resubmitting our plans to the city & getting plans redrawn over & over again by our structural engineer, we finally got the permit to start working. Yesterday was day 1 of the second part of our large construction (there will be more after this, we plan on ripping out the entire front yard and also build a second level in the back of the house, but one thing at a time). This was what the front of the house looks like after a couple of hours.
The end of day 1.
