Proof is in the Pile...

Demo day has arrived!

still so much tile to remove!

almost an "opened up" dining room! 

the "pile" so far
mud room.  closets out/sink out
 Who knew demo was a "one man show".  Poor guy....removing tile is a be-yach!   Not only is the tile a fiasco but all of the sub floor is screwed down rather than nailed.  And he said there are screws everywhere!  They thought demo would be a day or maybe 2.  It's looking more like at least 3!
I'm off to look at granite this morning.  I have an idea of what I want but still not 100%.  Terry wanted butcher block on the island but that went out the door.  It's just too high maintenance.  And we decided to go with a dark wood island instead so butcher block wouldn't look right~ I am trying to decide between 2 different colors of granite vs. just one throughout and do we keep it shiny or do we have it "honed".   (where it isn't shiny anymore)  Decisions Decisions!!!  
I purchased the hardware yesterday.  I bought both handles and knobs.  Handles for the drawers and knobs for cabinets.  I got them at Ikea....fairly inexpensive & traditional.
I think we have our island pendant lights picked out but still have 3 other fixtures to decide on.  More decisions!  :)
