Monkeyman- looks like you're making progress with the demo... great direction taking out the FP. Who needs it when you have such a smokin' hot view of that pool! Keep those kids busy and the updates coming!

More Progress-

The concrete slab underneath the chimney was built like Fort Knox... the concrete was about 20 inches thick... CRAZY. This poor guy worked a FULL day with a jackhammer to get it out.


You can see that even with a jackhammer only small chips of it would come off.


When it was fully removed it left a big hole in the ground right outside the doors.. I need to get some dirt from the yard to fill it before someone falls into it.


Looking Southwest.. New Windows and Doors installed


Southeast


Due South


The drywall went up today and they worked on the electrical for some new switches.. fan controls, and power strips at the peak of the ceiling for all the tiki lamps that will eventually hang there...

progress....

Drywall work is done. Sprayed and mudded over the weekend.


They made my center beam wider so that they could fit my new electrical wiring in the ceiling.
Now its ready for my power strip and ceiling fan.

lookin real good derek! Can't wait to see what magic you'll do with all that bamboo (and what type of MM lights will be hanging from the ceiling too!)

I have to admit - Fireplace demolition looked like fun

Man, getting the chimney foundation out must have been a real b*tch. They pour those super thick to keep them from settling under the weight of the chimney. The doors look sweet.

Those doors were a damn good idea...great view indeed.

Never knew that about chimney foundations...makes sense. My back hurt just look at that demolition.

Updates- The new drywall and texturing has been painted with two coats of primer. Essentially bringing me back to ground zero (a finished room with no holes in the walls)


The Ceiling was then painted brown. I will be using some reed fencing as a ceiling treatment and I wanted to avoid see the white paint through the small openings in that material. The olive brown will fill in the gaps between each reed.


The window trim wont go all the way over the sill so I painted them for easier dusting/cleaning etc.



UGGHH!!!! this is what your kitchen looks like when you've been living in "remodeling mode" for 8 months.... Its gets on your nerves after awhile...

These 1x2's will be attached to the beams in the ceiling and will actually secure the matting and reed fencing to the underside of the drywall.

The beams were straight from Home Depot and I shaped and distressed them with a grinder. Stain and Semi Gloss.


My brother has been an excellent "second set of hands" throughout all of my remodeling. He is a huge help.


The ceiling is starting to take shape. We will be attaching big bamboo perpendicular to the wooden supports.
