Demo Day Details

Demo days are finally underway—hurray! Here’s an update to show you the progress that’s taking place in the mountains. The fake stone walls and arched ceilings are leaving quickly thanks to the hydraulic jackhammers and man power on the premises today. When the real stone was removed from the fake fireplace with the ‘off center’ arch, there was no sign of the original wood burning fireplace. I wonder why someone removed it and put fake gas logs in its place? What did they do on cold winter evenings? What a shame to miss cocktails and snuggling by the fire. But at least I’m saving all of the real stone for future use in the garden!

The whole space is full of light and potential now. The new exterior paint color has gone up and the house recedes and blends beautifully into the landscape.

But wait, there’s more. Stay tuned for updates!

No more Faux stone Arches or fake wood ceilings

Looks clean and open now–none of the arches are the same size–go figure

Looking back from the dining room into the living room

Nothing was behind all of that stone

Fake fireplace between the Sun Room and Family Room will be leaving soon

Great wall of casement windows with a mountain view-when the plastic is removed by the painters

Faux Stone arch is leaving today

New paint color is just yummy–new doors soon

Even the benches are getting a new coat of paint

I love demolition and renovation–more later!

  4. Hey Lissy! I love your BLOG. Did you see that Country Living magazine has a contest for “Blue Ribbon Blogger Awards?” You could win in several catagories. Put yourself up at and you could win mention in their magazine and a trip to NYC!
