Here's the empty family room (except for the sofa) and we had only a one evening warning that we needed to have it empty. I'm starting to agree with Rocketman when he says we have too much stuff but don't tell him I said that. The ceiling was scraped of all the popcorn along with the kitchen ceiling.
The old countertops were removed.
And here is the new Silastone countertops. I love them! Tomorrow the backsplash is going up. We are also looking at a new stove and refrigerator. I still haven't convinced Rocketman but he's coming around.
Louie has been hiding out somewhere and coming out only at night. Everything in the family room is now in the living room so there are lots of places for him to hide in.
