And the Walls on the House go Up and Down, Up and Down, Up and Down

So we are moving at a rate of one wall up and two walls down. That just doesn't sound right, does it? At this pace we should be back to virgin land in a matter of months.

Matt, Tom & Bob admiring their destructive handy work. (No. Not really. They are figuring out the best way to raise a 6"x10" beam to replace the load bearing wall they just ripped out.)

A shot taken from the front door looking out into the wilds beyond. Half the living room wall and half of the back wall are now gonzo.

Tom, taking down the remainder of the back wall. Above his head you can see the end of the 6"x10" beam that it took all four of us to raise. In truth I think the three of them could have put it up without me. They might have included me in the process because I looked so pathetic hanging around the edges of the workspace whilst the menfolk did what menfolk do.

Update: Note the beautiful kitchen flooring. Sure will be sad to see that go.
