Hiawatha's Update -- The Haus Remodel That Ate Summer


Remember Michael's teeny tiny oopsie & the ensuing flood? Well, we're finally reaching the end of our remodel... the one that ate summer.

Flooring was ripped out, cabinets demolished, walls knocked down. Jack hammers, crow bars, sledge hammers, oh my! Out went the dining room! Out went the kitchen! Out went the butler's pantry! Family room! Scotty Potty! Three hallways! The laundry room! The entry! Everything got yanked. Plastic sheeting everywhere. The dust, heavenly days, the dust!

And, every single day I was reminded that contractors don't flush. What's with that?!?

BUT, in a few short weeks the remodel will be finished. Yucky tile GONE! Icky carpet OUT! New stone will have been laid. New cabinets, new marble countertops, new new new everything!

Now that I think about it...

Maybe I should give Hiawatha a project in the master bedroom so I can get an entirely new upstairs in my wigwam, too!


My very own Hiawatha at Minnehaha Falls in Minnesota!

Sounds wonderful! The gorgeous sounding kitchen with the granite counter tops that is ....not the dust & flushing challenged contractors *wink* :o) You'll have to post pictures sometime!

Love it! The "contractors do not flush" comment...it really isn't funny...but nevertheless, I laughed out loud (not at your expense, of course) :) I can't wait to see pics of the finished project!!

Thanks for your sweet comments on my blog! :)

Next up on the remodel "wish list": to see if I can "fix" the hot water heater and get a pool (we NEED one) out of it. Still kicking around ideas....
