Construction has begun!

Our house is officially under construction!!

BEFORE

NOW

It's really happening! Construction is in process! 

I am attempting to get rid of all of the old appliances in the house, much to Jeremy's frustration. The new appliance company will take away the old ones, but I feel like we have to recycle! Give them to someone who will use them. Jeremy thinks I am going to be abducted by some strange Craig's List guy, who wants a free dishwasher. So...he escorts me on all of my giveaways. 

Yesterday, in the 175 degree heat with 99% humidity we gave a dishwasher to a nice dad, who was looking for one for his daughter. He spent about 25 minutes fiddling on the floor of the filthy old kitchen, disconnecting and unhooking the 20 year old dishwasher. I seriously almost threw up when years old water came spilling on this poor guy's head. 

But now, his daughter has a dishwasher. And we sweated more I do in a bikram yoga. Reduce. Reuse. Recycle. I was listening in the girl scouts. 

Anyone need a gas stove or a washer and dryer? FREE if you're willing to come and get it!

Woo-hoo! This is so exciting! I can't wait for more updates!

Have you looked into any charities that might come and pick up old appliances? I don't know of any myself, just curious. I think what you're doing is wonderful. :-)
