While we were still trying to decide on an architect (or if we could do this without one), I thought we would order a bin and do a bit of demo. But before we did, we had to let the kids have a bit of fun! So we let them loose, along with a few neighbourhood friends, to grafitti the walls with some markers and paint. What a ball! I'm pretty sure we'll all remember that afternoon for a long time to come.
We're starting the demo in the basement so that we can see the foundation walls. It looks like both the kitchen and sunroom were additions put on at some point in the house's lifetime. Gigi (my dad) has suggested that in order to open up the rooms above these additions (that he thinks were done separately) we might be better off to tear down and rebuild the additions. Yikes! That sounds expensive!
