We've made a lot of progress in the last 10 days!  Jack got the tile floor in the kitchen demo'ed the first night and finished up putting the durock down yesterday.  The longest part was taking out all of the staples that were on the floor.  Literally thousands.  Saturday my sweet dad came over, we took an expensive trip to Home Depot to buy everything we needed for the cabinet molding and the durock.  We get back to the house, my dad climbs up a very old, unstable ladder to make one cut in the drywall and the ladder slipped out from under him and he fell on to it.  His chin was banged up and we thought he broke a rib.  Luckily he didn't break a rib but bruised them really bad.  Poor guy :(  It was pretty scary.  Of course he was back over  at the house helping.

Here are some pictures of our progress.
The ugly tile floor before demo.

Moving right along the first night!

Guest bathroom vanity gone :)

All the tile up and under it was a vinyl fake wood floor with a million staples.

Durock is down and ready for new tile.

Removing the wall between kitchen and new t.v. room.

Same wall as above.

Just the view from the t.v. room.

Looking down the hallway to the garage and mudroom.

New lights in the ceiling and boxes for the new pendants over the island.  Also made progress on painting the cabinets, moving some cabinets around, and building the refrigerator surround.

Cut out in wall to the new t.v. room.

This weekend we will hopefully get the rest of the cabinets painted.  Then Monday the new floor tile is installed!
