After a second weekend of demo, our house is definitely looking worse for the wear. I can see through some walls now. Where plaster and lath once were, the dust is now settling on giant gaping holes. And our front yard was (as of Sunday) looking very “scrap yard”-esque, complete with busted toilet. I don't think a sight line from the upstairs bathroom to the front door is what they meant by "open concept".
We’ve been homeowners now for exactly two weeks. I think I’ve also already experienced the whole gamut of homeowner-related emotions; everything from the fiery pits of buyers remorse (WHAT HAVE WE DONE!) to the mountain tops of excitement where the possibilities are endless (I am basically Joanna Gaines). Despite going in with our rose colored glasses off, these feelings were probably inevitable. And despite the feelings of uncertainty as demo makes the house look worse, our spirit is not crushed.
