Preparing for work

Today the work begins. I'm excited for that to happen after all these months (years) of planning and stress. I feel like we're at least past the halfway mark on planning and the majority of the big items have been decided on.

I emptied the room that the bathroom is going in but also emptied half the living room and dining room, both to provide ample passage as well as to allow access to the wardrobe in the living room that the water, sewer and electrical are going to go through. There are also a couple of areas in the basement that need to be cleared which was also a great motivator to finally organise a bit and clean out stuff that we don't need.
