The destruction phase of mine is done. My son and I tore out walls, transforming the tiny dining room, tinier kitchen and narrow hallway into one still not all that big space. Old flooring has been torn up and a gleeful ten year old took a sledgehammer to all the old cabinetry. Plumbing and wiring have been moved new lights are in and the new drywall is up. As soon as I finish my coffee and tear myself away from here, we are picking up the lumber and beginning cabinet construction. The sunroom has been given up to the tablesaw and other tools. It's so exciting.
