Last night, Ryan and Clark finished installing the last two joists. Woohoo!
|Three new joists!|
In the process of doing that, they had to remove our temporary sub-floor so the kitchen now looks like an even bigger hole than it previously did. It's also verrrry hard to walk across since the three new joists aren't cemented in yet. Caley on the other hand, doesn't seem to have a problem ;)
|Leveling the joists.|
They also started leveling the joists out so we can put in a new subfloor. Oh, how I can't wait to have a floor to walk on ....
While they were busy with the floors, I scraped out the old mortar in the bricks that we're going to expose. Sometimes I have to earn my keep ;). I still have a small portion to do on the right wall but we're almost done.
|Notice the sink pipes?|
We're trying to do everything dusty now so that we can move the plastic and just cover up the kitchen. I can't even imagine having part of the first floor to live in again, it's going to be marvelous :)
