Kitchen Demo Part III

We didn't waste anytime this past weekend. My parent's arrived Friday night and we spent the evening washing down the cupboards in preparation for rejuvenating them on Saturday.
Saturday we grouted and sealed the tile. It wasn't really a hard job--but it was quite time consuming. The kids all were such a great help.My dad and Birch put together the new sink.We were short a couple of parts so we didn't end up having a working sink and dishwasher until Monday morning--OH BLESSED DAY!!
My mom was busy sanding, organizing, putting on new cabinet knobs, entertaining the kids, etc...
Monday Birch and the gentleman that we hired to do the countertops started on the hardwood floor in the kitchen. Birch worked from 5 AM until 10:30 PM yesterday. We are about half way done laying the floor. Hopefully by tomorrow the floors will be sanded and ready to seal. We are also having the maple hallway refinished.
So it is chaos at our house! The kitchen island is the in the living room with all the hardwood, couches, dining room table, etc... The fridge is on the front porch. The kids are all being really patient and helpful and mom is trying to do the same. I love everything so far!
