A 1st team was created by a former builder who knew the family for years and did some odd jobs here (who though retired was ready to help and oversee all, arrange all ).
Original idea was to start from doing all upstair first (dad wanted it so). Well all checked, plans made and people who were to deal with it were busy with some other works so we waited.
Then when the guy went away for a few days I started checking whether downstairs first wouldn`t be easier… It would be and somehow everyone was free to start right then! And we started the demo proces…
An old idea of interchanging kitchen and bathroom was talked of then and as it was possible I decided to do it. If not now when?
Let me explain the bathroom was long and narrow to say the least. Two people could not be in it at the same time really. Kitchen was … big and full of light (and this is all the positive that could be said here)..
To do it first all the walls had to disappear. Obvious really but there is one thing that you have to think of – demolition comes not just with the noise but also a lots of bricks you have to get ride of (so need special containers, special tratment of it all (cost special too, not too horrid, but).
This is also a moment when you need someone to deal with water, gas, electricity and what seems to bring the most FUN -they have to coordinate their works!
