We broke ground this weekend on the remodeling of our family room. We knocked out the wall between the "den" and "formal dining room" titled rooms and have a lot of work ahead of us. Bill's friend Floyd is helping us...thanks Floyd!! I scraped all the ugly flower wallpaper off the dining room walls, which wasn't an easy job. A vent needs to get moved and drywall needs to repair the broken hole in the ceiling. Also, we had to say good bye to the lovely plaid carpet. We'll miss you o ugly eyesore. May you have plaid fields in which to run and see other parts of the world. We posted the carpet on craigslist and within an hour, it was gone. But there are some crazy craigslisters! It's just carpet! Get over it! We should have most of the project done in about a month, but it will take longer to make it aesthetically pleasing.
