Progressing and a Home with No Kitchen

We are progressing nicely.  Actually, we are in the throws of demo so everything is dust covered and gritty.  Not my favorite part.  We have no kitchen.  The electrical is slowly being installed and upgraded.  The flooring will hopefully get moving next week.  We are looking for a "put everything back together" date of 10-30. Keep your fingers crossed.  Of course, that will be without wall paint and countertops but should be a working "enough" kitchen.

Of course we found plumbing pipes in one of the torn out soffits. So now I am waiting on a plumber to come out and re-route these pipes so my drywall guy can repair the walls! Always something unexpected :)

I have fallen in love with my landscaper (sorry Byron!). So if anyone in the Houston area needs an incredible thinker, just do it, hard worker, trustworthy landscaper (trims trees, cleans gutters, yards maintenance, landscape designer, budget conscience), let me know. Luis rocks!

I have to show you the before...one more time!

AFTER! ...yes, the halloween decor is terrible!
